How can you get taller

Report as

Stretching is a myth (ask your doc if you don't believe me). Exactly how much taller are you looking to get? During our lives we experience "growth spurts". In men the last growth spurt occurs around the ages of 23-25. After that you're as tall as you're gonna get. The procedure used on ppl with dwarfism which includes the braking of the legs and over a year of painfully turning a socket to expand the leg bone is not offered to ppl over 4'9. Put simply if you're super desperate you are not going to find a doc willing to do it. It's hard for little people to find a doc to do it!
If you're over the age of 25 then chances are pretty good that you are going to have to learn to love your height as it is.
Side note: In regards to the "stretching" myth I just want to clear this up for you. If you measure your height as soon as you get up in the morning, then again before bed in the evening you will see a height difference up to an inch. The reason being that when laying in bed sleeping your spine is not being pulled down by gravity and your disc's relax and separate a bit this making you a wee bit taller in the morning. As your day goes on your weight and gravity "scrunch" down on your spine this losing that overnight height. This is where the myth derived from but I swear to you that you can stretch for years and will find zero result
