Do growth spurts happen on their own or can you trigger a growth spurt? and how much do boys usually on average grow during their growth spurts?

Dr. James Ferguson answered

Specializes in Pediatrics

The expected yearly male linear growth after ten is about 2.5 inches/yr with an expected peak during a growth spirt of around 5-6 inches. If a kid slows to one inch or less/year it usually signals the end is near.
