Scapular downward rotation (or scapular superior rotation) is a rotary movement of the scapula – moving the inferior (lower) angle of the shoulder blade (scapula) medially and downwards – see Figure 1.
In anatomical terminology, a medial movement is one that moves part of the body closer to (medial to) the midline of the body.
