Cold attacks the body, resulting in skin damages, and also lowers the body temperature, causing hypothermia that the body needs to combat in order to maintain its temperature close to 37°C.

The knee has two menisci: the inner meniscus and the outer meniscus.
Menisci are a fibrocartilaginous structure that have several functions in the knee:
• a cushioning role and load spreading role
• a stabilising role
• a lubricating role, managing the absorption and secretion of synovial fluid (articular fluid) in the knee.
• A protective role against arthritis

Athlete's feet are the most sensitive body part since most efforts are provided by the feet/shoes interface.
When walking, running or jumping, propulsion is provided by the foot and ankle, resulting in stresses that may impact the whole body dut to the vibration shock wave.
Long-term running causes changes in certain foot variables, such as a flattening of the foot arch. Such changes are probably due to fatigued foot stabiliser muscles, hence the idea to use corrective and cushioning insoles during sports, even for feet considered as normal in static or rest conditions
