Scapular winging involves one or both shoulder blades sticking out from the back rather than lying flat. It can happen as a result of injury or nerve damage. The scapula, or shoulder blades, are flat bones that connect the upper arm to the collar bone. When they come out of place, it can cause scapular winging.
Should collarbones be symmetrical?
