A 39-year-old female asked:
I know chiropractor can make you stand taller but how did i grow 3 inches in height after going? i stopped visits 4 yrs ago & am still 3 inches taller

Standing taller: The growth plates of your bones fuse 2-3 years after puberty and after that there is no known way to grow taller. As you said, I believe you did not grow in height but are standing taller which makes it look like you are taller.
Either that or it was a true miracle!!!
Which is very cool...
