Increase Your Height – You Can Increase Your Height at Any Age!

The most common question I get asked about growing taller and increasing height,is if it is possible to grow taller even after puberty. The answer is yes,you can still increase your height up to 4 inches no matter how old you are.

There have been reports of people growing taller in their late 20s,30s, and even 50s. I personally started to increase my height in my mid 20s, after many years of not growing at all. The secret is following a plan that will enable you to get a growth spurt regardless of age.

Did you know that the average person can increase their height by 2-4 inches? Some people can even go way beyond 4 inches if they are dedicated.

When we are done with puberty the bones in our legs become fused, which means those bones will not become any longer. However, your spine never becomes fused,and it can be stretched and lengthened with special height increase exercises.

The Spinal column in your upper body contributes significantly to your height because it accounts for 35% of your total height.

Your spinal column consists of 33 separate bone segments known as vertebrae held together by ligaments (tough and fibrous tissue).

Out of these 33 vertebrae, only the lowest 9 are fused into two immovable bones. All of the other 24 vertebrae are permanently movable and can NEVER be fused.

One important component of the spine is the cartilaginous pads called intervertebral discs.

These discs are located between each of these 33 vertebrae. They are pads of soft tissue that lie between the vertebrae. Its main function is to absorb shock, kind like shock absorbers in a car.

On average, your total discs account for one-quarter the length of your vertebral column – 4.5 to 6 inches for most people. The thicker those discs, the longer your spinal column is and the more height you will increase.

Doing stretching exercises every day will help you lengthen your spine and increase your height. They will also help you improve and straighten your posture which helps you become taller.
