It performs downward rotation and stabilizes the clavicle

21

What are the origin and insertion points of the subclavius muscle?

Origin: Sternal end of 1st rib
Insertion: Inferior surface of clavicle

22

Name the common attachments of the Scapular muscles?

All insert at Scapula or Clavicle and originate from vertebral column and rib cage
