The lower subscapular nerve (alternatively, inferior subscapular nerve) is a nerve that supplies the lower part of the subscapularis muscle, and also supplies the teres major muscle.

It consists of fibres from C5-6 spinal nerves. It branches from the posterior cord of the brachial plexus.

Teres major is sometimes supplied by a separate branch.
