Hello, I recently noticed after taking some photos of my back that my lower left trapezius is somehow underdeveloped. There seems to be just a hole compared to my right one, which looks completely normal. My upper traps look fine on both sides. I do not notice any lack of range of movement on my left side. I noticed that my left scapula is slightly elevated, but I assume it is because of the lack of the lower left trap which would pull it down and inside. I found a photo on the internet which is very similar to what my back looks like: http://www.specialistphysio.com/library/Atrophy%20of%20left%20lower%20trapezius.jpg
Could I have some anomalous trap insertion? Nerve problem (but I do not notice any lack of movement anywhere at all)? Or could it be just underdeveloped for some reason? Would exercising it with weights eventually balance it with the other side?
