Growth plates: If your growth plates are still open/active you will continue to grow some. Ask to see an endocrinologist about solutions for additional growth. Often injections of medication to do this are not without side effects. ...Read more

Till what age does wrist circumference increase? 20, wrist size 6.7 inches, height 173 cm, ankle 8.9 inches.

Till what age does wrist circumference increase? 20, wrist size 6.7 inches, height 173 cm, ankle 8.9 inches.

Varies somewhat: The mechanism by which the circumference of the wrist increases includes the growth of the bones that make up the wrist, the joint spaces in the wrist, and also the soft tissues of the wrist as well. Bone growth in males can vary quite a bit anywhere usually between 14 and 21. Muscle and tendon size vary with use. Even elderly patients can have increase in wrist circumference due to arthritis. ...Read more

What age. Do fingers stop lengthening and widening? In teen boys what age do the plates fuse. Also do hands stop growing before height?

What age. Do fingers stop lengthening and widening? In teen boys what age do the plates fuse. Also do hands stop growing before height?

Long bone growth: The growth centers in all long bones follow a similar pattern. The growth centers in the hand and wrist are even used to predict when final linear growth is finished. Closure of the growth centers in the wrist/hand is complete in most males at 17-18 with a few lagging behind. When the hand centers are closed, linear growth in the hands and height in general will stop. ...Read more

16yrs male... 3 inches away from maximum height....can I start lifting weights....I'm 150lbs....will 20 lbs dumbbells in each hand stunt my growth.

16yrs male... 3 inches away from maximum height....can I start lifting weights....I'm 150lbs....will 20 lbs dumbbells in each hand stunt my growth.

Outstanding!: Great time to start weight training. Your bones and growth plates in those bones are ready. Dumbbells are a great way to train. Use multi joint exercises instead of single joint..... That is, lunges and dumbbell presses instead of straight bicep curls..... Great way to work on your core muscles..... Abdomen, hips, pelvis ...Read more

Iam male 16 year old my height is 175 and my hand growth plates has close will I grow more or my height growth is stop?

Iam male 16 year old my height is 175 and my hand growth plates has close will I grow more or my height growth is stop?

Any growth last yr.?: If no growth in the past year, then growth has finished. If one did grow some, there may be growth this year. Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well and being happy, there's not much a person can do that changes height. ...Read more

Is lack of sleeping stunt growth or decrease height? Does the small size in hand means that there is a growth problem?

No: Lack of sleep does not stunt growth but it does interfere with performance in school and job and concentration even if you do not recognize it. Small hands are the way you are made. ...Read more

Are. There always some physical signs w/ acromegaly in adults like nose widen, hand/feet growing? Or can you have it w/ no symps other than height gain

Are. There always some physical signs w/ acromegaly in adults like nose widen, hand/feet growing? Or can you have it w/ no symps other than height gain

Not height gain: Once the growth plates in bones have closed (by age 20) you will not increase in height, no matter how much GH is there. Acromegaly in adults involves thickening of bones and features, but not linear growth. Keep in mind that there can be minor changes in spacing between the vertebrae, which could account for variation in measurements from time to time. Maybe 1 inch. ...Read more

What does it mean, when an Underweight Person at the same height as a Healthy Individual has Small Bone like hands and feet does he have Low Bone mas?

What does it mean, when an Underweight Person at the same height as a Healthy Individual has Small Bone like hands and feet does he have Low Bone mas?

Probably, NotCertain: Given limited information & the complexity of human body anatomy, this assessment likely has some accuracy. Since body anatomy, over time, usually adapts to body use & build in a effort to enable survival, low body weight/nutrition/demands for carrying body mass does not drive high bone mass. At the same time, external features do not always reflect internal structure for each individual. Why? ...Read more

My hands shake uncontrolably when holding any object smaller than a beer mug, and usually at a height above my heart. Larger objects anchor them so little to no shaking. I cant control my signatures anymore either. What could this be?

Shaking hands: Need to be evaluated by your doctor or a neurologist. It could be several things, including pinched nerves, tremors that some folks get, or a neurological condition. Your doctors will diagnose and help. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Do I have nerve damage because my hand feels numb? I’m a 45 year old male of average height and weight. A week ago, I fell a sleep with my right hand behind the back of my head. I woke up in the middle of the night and my arm was numb with no feeling. Wit

Nerves: Nerves can get pinched by sleeping in funny positions, and this can result in temporary (and sometimes longer-lasting) numbness and weakness. A google search for the term "saturday night palsy" will reveal a "textbook example" of a not-so-common, but very well-recognized, nerve compression syndrome (in this case, of the radial nerve). Also, one of the contributing factors of carpal tunnel syndrome (pinching of the median nerve) may be hand position during sleep.

Other things can also cause numbness of the hands. Determining the cause involves a careful physical examination (which most doctors should be able to perform, but many cannot or do not), and sometimes requires special tests (including electrodiagnostic testing -- see my health guide at the link below) which probably get done more often than necessary.

Left undiagnosed and untreated, hand numbness can get worse, can become associated with weakness, and eventually cause inability to use the hands.

Indications that a doctor is qualified to diagnose the causes of hand numbness include board certification (such as by the american board of psychiatry and neurology and the american board of electrodiagnostic medicine). It is also a good idea to ensure that the board certified physician is the one who actually performs the examination, rather than a physician extender (pa or other) who is merely supervised by the physician. A thorough examination for hand numbness includes checking the strength of the major movements at each joint in the affected limb (fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders, in this case), checking sensation in the entire affected limb up to and including the neck, checking reflexes at several points (forearms and both sides of the elbows at least), and checking coordination. This should be in addition to a general examination of the other limbs and major organs.

I have pain on my right side shoulder. At times it becomes difficult to raise my hand. Would you kindly tell me whst it is and the medication. Thank y?

I have pain on my right side shoulder. At times it becomes difficult to raise my hand. Would you kindly tell me whst it is and the medication. Thank y?

Rotator cuff: Start with some easy exercises to work the muscles of the shoulder blade that the rotator cuff attaches to. This will take some of the strain off the cuff. Use a rag and wipe a surface in the numbers of a clock face from the center up to 12:00 then back to center then 1:00 and so on. Start on a flat table top and gradually work your way up to a mirror or other vertical surface. Motrin may help. ...Read more
