The supraspinatus muscle
lies along the upper part of the shoulder
. This muscle
stretches between the scapula
and the humerus
. In conjunction with the deltoid
muscle, the supraspinatus muscle allows for the shoulder
to extend out from the body
. The suprascapular nerve is the supraspinatus muscle's nerve supply. The principal disorder affecting the supraspinatus muscle is tendon tearing.
