No: Using ankle weights does not change a person's height. If a person is short, and is still a child, she can discuss the issue with her doctor at her annual check-ups, to see if there is a medical problem that is causing her shortness.

In rare cases, growth hormone is approved for use in younger, extremely short kids. ...Read more
