Your height can increase till your bones fusion take place.
The long bones like femur, tibia fuse between 18 to 20 years in both females and males and after that there is no increase in height.
Is is also controlled by hormones and Growth hormone is one of an inducer for bone growth. Eating healthy food, protiens and calcium in diet and with exercises like cycling etc there is some sort of positive influence but the height is mostly genetically determined. Take care!

Hello!

All forms of stretching exercises are helpful.
Try basketball, swimming, skipping, cycling etc and you can increase your height for few cms for sure. You have couple of years where your height will increase a little. Sports for your age are very helpful.

If you want to use any form of shoe or device check with your local orthopedician.  If they are helpful he will surely suggest you to use them. A second opinion is always good after your primary research.

Take care!

Hello!

Walking is always good but some form of stretching like trampoline, swimming, basketball, aerobics, swimming will help you more.

For your young age indulging in sports is always better.

Go for a routine examination near an orthopedician who would examine your long bones and after that will give you the best possible suggestions!

Take care!

Hello!

Any form of stretching is good for growing age and it contributes in some way, e.g. skipping, cycling etc.

The 2 most important things which determine active bone growth and overall growth are:
1) Your genetic history and your normal hormones required for growth
2) Proper balanced diet with enough protein and calcium during growing age with active life style.

Take care!

Hello!

You can grow taller then what you are and if your maternal or paternal grandparents have more height then there is better hereditary/genes reasons for you to grow. Your dad and mom are also taller then what you are. Growth is also related with your levels of growth hormones and female hormones and also with diet, proper nutrition and exercise. The factors like physical exercise and balanced diet are under your control. I would suggest you stretching exercises, cycling, swimming, aerobics and also to involve in sports like basketball. Have a balanced diet with diet rich in calcium and proteins.

Take care!

Dr. Vinod,

My daughter is 13.5 years old.  She had her 1st period at age of 11.9 years and has grown app 3.5 inches since then and is now 149 cms. For last 6 months she has'nt grown in height. Doctors says that here bones are fused (based on wrist X-ray) and hence she cannot grow any further. But i see contradicitng theories about bone fusion and height growth in the interent. my height is 168 cms and my wife's heightis 158 cms.

Please could you advise whether she still has room to grow in height, atleast couple of inches?
