The spinal column provides *fixation* and flexibility.
1) Is "fixation" a noun from "to fix" or "to fixate"?
2) Can it mean "attachment place for muscles" in this context? It's not a professional medical text, it's about safety of manual jobs ( lifting heavy things etc.)
It means to fix, also to support and to solidify, so you are correct, it can mean what you think.
'fixation' cannot be used. In its closest meaning to what you want to say about the spine, it refers to the action of making something stable, able to be preserved; or permanent and unchanging.
I think you might be stuck with 'support and flexibility'
