Rhomboid Major: The rhomboid major is one of the rhomboids, a group of paired muscles located in the upper back area. The rhomboid major is the largest rhomboid muscle and is important when performing such activities as rowing and pulling open a drawer. The rhomboid major originates on the spinous process of T-2 through T-5 vertebrae and inserts on the scapula. The rhomboid major retracts, or brings together, the scapulas and rotates them downward. It is innervated by the dorsal scapular nerve.
Conditions that can afflict the rhomboid major include postural kyphosis, winged scapula, myalga, rupture, tears, strains, myopathy, atrophy, infectious myositis, neuromuscular diseases, lacerations and contusions.
