Many people believe that when the bone is entirely calcified and closed, there is no possibility to get taller; nevertheless, it is possible to grow taller even when the epiphyseal line is closed! So, let’s talk about how to increase the height in two different situations: “before the epiphyseal line is closed” and “after the epiphyseal line is closed”!
“Prior to the closure of the epiphyseal line”, this era occurs before the age of around 20 years old, and it is mostly concerned with nutrition. During puberty (about 10-15 years old), this is the golden phase of growth and development; to guarantee a balanced intake of the seven components of carbon water, fat, protein, cellulose, vitamins, minerals, and water, of which “protein” and “calcium” are the most important.
Next, maintain excellent behaviours. That is, the most essential thing is to obtain enough sleep for 7-8 hours, since if your growth hormone secretion is sufficient, you can get taller, brother. Then it refused to inhale second-hand smoke, which was, indeed, second-hand smoke. The chemicals in it may easily impact growth hormone secretion, which has a negative effect on growth, therefore individuals who smoke in the house should be aware of this.
Then, don’t forget to exercise. The first form of sport is bounce sports, which include rope skipping, basketball, high jump, and so on. Swimming and badminton are followed by full-body aerobic workouts. Finally, practise additional stretching exercises, particularly a variety of leg stretching before going to bed, which is highly beneficial to leg lengthening.
The time “following the closure of the epiphyseal line,” which happens after around 20 years of age, follows. This is to correct OX-shaped legs, neck extension, pelvic leaning, hunchback, head tilting, and other posture issues. In reality, these posture issues will lead our body form to not be properly extended, which will have a significant visible impact on our height. It is not difficult to grow 3-4cm taller if these posture issues can be corrected.

Apply the “from bottom to top” concept. Long-term persistence will provide big gains! First, practise arched leg, then anterior pelvic tilt, then neck hump, and finally head leaning improvement.
