Typical articulation of the vertebral (posterior)portion of the rib
-The rib articulates with the vertebrae with the same number and the vertibrae superior to it

-the superior facet of the rib articulates with the inferior costal facet or demifacet of the superior vertebrae (eg=rib7-T6)
-the articular part of the tubercle of rib articulates with the facet on the transverse process of the vertebrae with the same number (eg=rib7-T7)

muscles of anterior compartment are innervated primarily by C6
Muscles of posterior compartment are innervated mainly by C7
 So C7 injury will affect primarily posterior compartment and anterior should be ok
Yeah.... it was just a clinical correlate, not a question. Sorry.
