“Scapula Alata is caused by an affection of the nerve Thoracicus Longus, resulting in a reduced function of the muscle Serratus Anterior. Serratus Anterior is responsible for keeping the shoulder blade (Scapula) stabile and in the right movement. With a reduced function in the Serratus muscle, the shoulder blade will raise into a winging position and move towards the spine, opposite as it is supposed to. The patient will experience different kinds of difficulties. It can be all from tiredness in the arm to disabling pains, reduced strength, restriction of movement and radiating symptoms.” *
