In brief: No good solution

There is nothing a person can do to catch up growth after a growth plate injury.
If there is a limb length discrepancy after such an injury has resolved, then the limbs could be evened out by limb length shortening of the other side or lengthening of the shorter side but these are typically only done if the discrepancy is severe.
