I would like to know if there is anything I can do to increase my height, I'm only 5' and would like to grow taller. I'm 33 years old
Hello
No
There is no way to significantly increase your height at this point.
I am not sure where you got the idea?
Internet info?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes internet info so wanted medical advice as I thought after 20 you stop growing
Correct
At 33 your bones are fixed everywhere.
You are not going to grow more.
However, most people have a half inch to an inch of shortening due to poor structural integration. They are constricted.
Alexander Technique can help you unwind this and maybe have just a little more stature.
