Diseases of the joints such as arthrosis are among the most common diseases in Germany. Usually, knee or hip joints are affected by cartilage damage. An artificial joint can be a remedy, the use of which must be carefully weighed. The cause of excessive joint wear is usually excessive stress – due to, for example, increased body weight, joint misalignment or lack of movement. Many people underestimate the positive effect that regular movement has on joints and bones. Each joint, each bone is held and fixed by ligaments and muscles, which must be regularly stressed in order to keep their full functionality. Only when joints are moved is the cartilage layer retained.
