In brief: Shoulder blade
The scapula is the shoulder blade bone.
It is attached to the back and chest through the collar bone and lots of muscles. The scapula also forms the socket part of the shoulder ball and socket joint. The scapula is important for giving the shoulder its huge flexibility. The problem is that such huge flexibility makes it easy to injure.
