As I am old and have knee problems, this is relevant to my interests.

The method they used was to pull your joints apart by 5mm then leave them like that for 2 months.

Or you could take up swimming regularly.

I have been checking this sort of thing for a while, no weight and lots of reps also works wonders. I get on the fixed cycle at the lowest setting for an hour every few days. Seems to work.

Whatever you do, don't the opposite and be fat and sedentary. That is the route to painful knees.

I'm old and have ankles of shattered glass held together by duct tape, so this is relevant to my interests.  Where do I sign up?

Of course cartilage can grow. Your nose and ears wouldn't look like that if it didn't.
