Sorry: By 22 years old, the long bone growth plates are closed. Can only rely on platforms/heels to get taller. More important to accept you as you are--will reflect in how you interact daily with others.

Unlikely to happen: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have closed, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist ; hand can yield a bone maturity. When you have reached bony maturity, you are done.
