Is it possible to increase height after 21?

Is it possible to increase height after 21?

Depends on bone age: The potential additional length anyone can expect depends on areas in the long bones (arms, legs, fingers)called growth plates. This is where growth occurs and an active open growth plate means more growth is possible. An xray of the hands & wrists can be evaluated for bone maturity since there are many growth centers to see. If your bone maturity is > 18yo you are done growing taller. ...Read more

21-22, very rare, no: Most men stop growing between ages 18-20 though there are rare cases of growing at 21 and very rarely at 22. But the odds of growing after 21 are quite small, as usually the growth plates of the bones have closed. Once the growth plates have closed then HGH can not help to increase height. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b73LhEoLzoQ for rare cases of late growth spurts. ...Read more

Not possible: If your height has been the same for the past 2 years, which usually happens at the end of puberty and usually well before age 20, the growth plates in your bones have fused and it is not possible to gain height anymore.
