The spine– the body's pillar of strength

The spine

Our spine is made up of 24 vertebral bodies that can move relative to each other, the sacrum and the coccyx. Because the spine is curved like a double "S", it acts like a coil spring and gives us our elastic gait.

The interplay between the moveable vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs between them makes the spine elastic, but stable at the same time.

Ligaments and tendons act to hold the vertebral bodies together and make it possible for us to move and stretch.

20 minutes regular back exercises - how to keep your back healthy

medi has compiled the special "2 x 8 exercise programme" - eight strengthening and eight stretching exercises - for improved well-being, especially after recovering from back pain.

The exercises concentrate on the torso: from the head down to the bottom and from the back round to the tummy. A well-trained torso stabilises the whole body and ensures more mobility.

The knee joint

The knee joint

The knee joint connects the thigh bone (femur) to the shinbone (tibia). At the ends of both bones there are smooth structures that form the cartilage. These are held together by an articular (joint) capsule. Ligaments, muscles and tendons ensure the stability of the knee joint.

Due to the complex anatomy of the knee, knee pain can have many causes.
