The scapula examination is performed on the patient's shoulder blade and is often used to check the examination of the high scapula. The scapula is also called the humerus and the tibia. Located behind the thorax, it is a triangular flat bone between the 2nd to 7th ribs. Scapular soreness is caused by long-term deformation of the muscles. It may also be caused by chronic muscle inflammation due to a long-term posture.
