Height is genetic: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood 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 nor his doctor can do to increase height. However, one should eating a variety of healthy foods and exercise 3-4 times a week. ...Read more

Is it possible to increase height after the age of 22? My height is 5'7.How can I increase my height? What type of exercises should I do externally

No: You've probably reached your full height. In most cultures, taller is a plus for a man, but it's completely overridden in the "looks" department by your muscular development and overall level of fitness. There's nothing you're going to be able to do about your height, but you can look fantastic just by spending an hour a day in the gym. Lee Priest (photo guy) is 5'2", not complaining. ...Read more

Is it. Possible to increase height at 18? From years I ve been hearing that height of boys increases till 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 to see. If your bone maturity is average for a 18yo you are done growing taller. ...Read more

Is it possible to increase height of a female after 25yrs?

Nothing: Unfortunately at 25 years of age you have likely reached adult height. Ultimately genetic plays the most powerful role in determining your final adult height. Of course good nutrition, lots of sleep, and a nurturing environment as a child can effect total height as well, but in your case there is not much chance you will get any taller. ...Read more

Is it possible to increase height at the age of 18? If yes, what are the possible ways?

Unlikely: Most 18 year-olds are pretty much done growing because growth plates fuse even before this age. If a teenager has delayed puberty then growth may continue past that.

Is it possible to increase height by stretching spine after puberty? If yes how much can I gain?

Not really: Stretching your spine will not increase your height after puberty. Occasionally we see some additional height when significant spinal deformities are surgically corrected. After skeletal maturity, you reach your final height. There are some leg lengthening surgeries, but again they are reserved for pathological conditions. ...Read more

Is it possible to increase height by the use of hgh?

Is it possible to increase height by the use of hgh?

If bones r growing: Growth hormone can cause vertical growth if the bones are still growing. At the ends of long bones are the growth plates. Once they fuse to the rest of the bone, usually in mid to late teens, growth is no longer possible. And real growth hormone is available only as an injection. The "hgh" they use for weight loss will not increase height. ...Read more

Is it possible to increase height for a 17 year old male because there are documents that suggest it's possible. Is there exercises that might help?

No: If your growth plates are no longer open, growth is over. Typically by the time a boy is 17, the growth plates are near complete fusion. There are no height enhancing exercises. If a 17 year old boy has delayed puberty there may be some growth potential left as the biological age would be younger than 17. ...Read more

I m 19 yrold girl wid pcos I m 5'6" my parents r 5'3" n 5'7" my younger bro is 5'11" is it possible 2 increase height by 2-3inches? If yes how?

Likely No: Girls / women with pcos generally close their bone growth plates earlier than their peers due to higher hormone levels at a younger age and on average are shorter than peers. There are rare exceptions and would depend on timing of puberty but if somewhere near normal or even cycle start longer than 1 year ago would be good evidence there is no room to manipulate or increase height. ...Read more

Not usually: Most girls have their growth spurt 2 years before and 2 years after the beginning of their periods. At this late date, another 4-6 inches would be very unlikely. There really isn't anything you can do about your height at this age (or most ages- it's usually related to your genetics). Accept who you are and focus on your strengths and other qualities. ...Read more

I am 21year old female. I want to increase my height. Currently my height is 5'2 ft. Is it possible to increase the height at these age? And if yes how?

I think not, sorry.: At your age all growing is over. You can see a specialist to see if your growth plates have closed but if you went through puberty at 11-16 then you have no growth left. You can probably work on your posture to increase your apparent height. A good chiropractor or PT can help with that. Human growth H is a hormone that can make children grow a few more inches... it would not help at your age. ...Read more

It is possible to increase the height of body after the age of 27. Thanks.

Platform shoes: Linear growth ends when the growth centers of the long bones close in response to hormonal stimulation. At 27, you are long past puberty and the closure of growth centers. There are limited studies of the surgical lengthening of bones, scandinavian I believe, in response to leg length discrepancy and other issues. These are complex, painful and limited in their benefit. ...Read more
