An estimated 20–30% of the general population have an arch that simply never develops in one or both feet . Flat feet (also called pes planus or fallen arches) is a postural deformity in which the arches of the foot collapse, with the entire sole of the foot coming into complete or near-complete contact with the ground.
The iliopsoas refers to the joined psoas and the iliacus muscles. The two muscles are separate in the abdomen, but usually merge in the thigh. As such, they are usually given the common name iliopsoas. The iliopsoas muscle joins to the femur at the lesser trochanter, and acts as the strongest flexor of the hip.
The iliopsoas muscle is supplied by the lumbar spinal nerves L1-3 (psoas) and parts of the femoral nerve (iliacus).

The erector spinae is not just one muscle, but a bundle of muscles and tendons which run more or less vertically and are paired left to right. These muscles lie in the groove to the side of the vertebral column and extend throughout the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical regions
If the erector spinae muscle is too tight or contains tender or trigger points it may limit certain movements or make them highly unpleasant.
The deltoid muscle is the muscle forming the rounded contour of the human shoulder.
The infraspinatus muscle is a thick triangular muscle, which occupies the chief part of the infraspinatous fossa. As one of the four muscles of the rotator cuff, the main function of the infraspinatus is to externally rotate the humerus and stabilize the shoulder joint
The supraspinatus is a relatively small muscle of the upper back that runs from the supraspinatus fossa superior portion of the scapula (shoulder blade) to the greater tubercle of the humerus. It is one of the four rotator cuff muscles and therefore helps to stabilize the glenohumeral joint, it also abducts the arm at the shoulder. The spine of the scapula separates the supraspinatus muscle from the infraspinatus muscle, which originates below the spine.
