The levator scapula apears to be involved in a number of shoulder problems and can even be implicated in migraine headaches (1). It commonly exhibits trigger points in cervical radiculopathy cases as well (2). 

From its proximal attachment to the transverse processes of the cervical vertebrae, to its distal attachment to . . .
