Winging Scapula (WS) is a condition in which the scapula (usually the medial and inferior borders) is displaced away from the body. WS can occur from neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, or structural causes. WS should be treated as a significant functional problem is not simply an aesthetic issue. Physical examination and diagnostic studies help clinicians to make the correct diagnosis. Diagnosis and treatment of WS will be discussed extensively and data from literature will be presented in this review
