Text of 1 Origin: Anterior surface, lateral clavicle, acromion process and spine of scapula Insertion:...

  • Deltoid Origin: Anterior surface, lateral clavicle, acromion process and spine of scapula Insertion: Deltoid tubercle of humerus Action: Abducts humerus; aids in flexion, extension, and internal and external rotation

  • Supraspinatus Origin: Supraspinous fossa Insertion: Greater tubercle of humerus Action: Abducts humerus

  • Infraspinatus Origin: Infraspinous fossa Insertion: Greater tubercle of humerus Action: Rotates humerus laterally

  • Teres Minor Origin: Axillary border of scapula Insertion: Greater tubercle of humerus Action: Rotates humerus laterally

  • Teres Major Origin: Axillary border at inferior angle of scapula Insertion: Intertubular groove of humerusAction: Extends, adduction and medial rotates humerus.

  • Subscapularis Origin: Subscapular fossa Insertion: Lesser tubercle of humerus Action: Rotates humerus medially

  • Biceps BrachiiOrigin: Long head, supraglenoid tubercle; Short head, coracoid process scapula Insertion: Radial tuberosity of the radiusAction: Flexes radius and humerus, and supinates forearm Short HeadLong Head

  • Coracobrachialis Origin: Coracoid process of scapula Insertion: Middle third of humerus Action: Flexes and adducts humerus

  • Triceps Brachii Origin: Long head, infraglenoid tubercle; Lateral head, proximal portion of posterior humerus; Medial head, distal half of posterior humerus Insertion: Olecranon process of ulna Action: Extends humerus and ulna Long HeadLateral Head

  • Brachialis Origin: Anterior distal two-thirds of humerus Insertion: Coronoid process of ulna Action: Flexes ulna

  • Pronator Teres Origin: Medial epicondyle of humerus and coronoid process of ulna Insertion: Middle portion of radius Action: Pronates and flexes forearm Anterior, Superficial Layer

  • Flexor Carpi Radialis Origin: Medial epicondyle of humerus Insertion: Base of second metacarpal Action: Flexes wrist and elbow and abducts wrist Anterior, Superficial Layer

  • Palmaris Longus Origin: Medial epicondyle of the humerus Insertion: Palmar aponeurosis Action: Weak flexion of wrist, tenses skin of palm Anterior, Superficial Layer

  • Flexor Carpi Ulnaris Origin: Medial epicondyle of humerus, olecranon process, & posterior ulna Insertion: Pisiform, hamate, and fifth metacarpal Action: Flexes and adducts wrist Anterior, Superficial Layer

  • Brachioradialis Origin: Lateral supracondylar ridge Insertion: Styloid process of radius Action: Flexes forearm Posterior, Superficial Layer

  • Extensor Carpi Radialis Longus Origin: Lateral supracondylar ridge of humerus Insertion: Second metacarpal Action: Extends and abducts hand Posterior, Superficial Layer

  • Extensor Carpi Radialis Brevis Origin: Lateral epicondyle of humerus Insertion: Third metacarpal Action: Extends and abducts hand Posterior, Superficial Layer

  • Extensor Digitorum Origin: Lateral epicondyle of humerus Insertion: Into distal phalanx by 4 tendons Action: Extends fingers and hand Posterior, Superficial Layer

  • Extensor Carpi Ulnaris Origin: Lateral epicondyle of humerus and posterior border of ulna Insertion: Fifth metacarpal Action: Extends and adducts hand Posterior, Superficial Layer
