During the years leading up to puberty, healthy children will grow an average of 2.5 inches per year. For girls, this pattern will continue until the beginning of menstruation, at which point growth will slow to about 1 or 2 more inches before stopping entirely, ending at the height that will remain for the duration of the adult life.

    Several methods can be used to increase height or make the body appear taller. Rest, exercise and hot showers help foster the development of hormones that cause the body to grow, according to MD Health. Good posture makes a person appear taller, and spine-stretching exercises can increase height by 1-2 inches. "Status shoes" contain lifts with insoles that raise the body 1-3 inches.
