Doctor can i ask help?? after every morning you grow a little bit taller because of decompression in the spine. Is it possible that I can make that height permanent when I make my muscles stronger in the spine?

Can you give me any tips in growing taller? am planning on summer doing exercises, stretching, eating allot of protein and sleeping allot. Because I believe it increases HGH level every time when a person gets stressed and you rest.Will it help grow taller? am also taking up suplement that is cherifer. Can you advice me on the best thing to do?? and what supplement should I take.

In terms of the skeletal system, it's not uncommon for people to keep growing until the age of 21-22.

You're young... Give it time.
