Rhomboid Minor: The rhomboid minor is one of the rhomboids, a group of paired muscles located in the upper back area. The rhomboid minor is the smallest rhomboid muscle and is important when performing such activities as rowing and pulling open a drawer. The rhomboid minor originates on the spinous process of C-7 through T-1 vertebrae and inserts on the scapula. The rhomboid minor works with the rhomboid major and other muscles to retract, or bring together, the scapulas and rotates them downward. It is innervated by the dorsal scapular nerve.
Conditions that can afflict the rhomboid minor include postural kyphosis, winged scapula, myalga, rupture, tears, strains, myopathy, atrophy, infectious myositis, and neuromuscular diseases, lacerations and contusions.
