Depression (Anatomical Term): Depression as an anatomical term is used to describe a general action of a muscle on a bone or joint. When a muscle depresses, it lowers the associated bone(s) and body part(s) in a downward direction, such as occurs when lowering the shoulders after shrugging them.
Depression is the opposite action of elevation. Conditions that can affect normal depression include musculoskeletal trauma, bone fracture, myalga, muscle/tendon rupture, muscle/tendon tears, strains, arthritis, myopathy, atrophy, infectious myositis, and neuromuscular diseases.
