Growth complete: At 33, your growth is complete. Spinal manipulation will not make you grow taller.
Iv been going to a posture corrective chiropractor for almost three months they have me going twice a week and I'm not getting more frequent and worse?

Different doctor: Have you consulted an orthopedic surgeon? If not, it would be in your interest to do that.
