One of the most frequently asked questions we hear today is whether or not it is still possible for people to grow taller naturally after puberty?
The answer is quite simply yes.
Puberty is a period in your life where your body will undergo a lot of big changes, both internally and externally.
But it does not mark the point at which you will no longer grow.
In fact, although you will grow at the quickest rate during puberty due to the body being flooded with hormones to facilitate the changes, you will continue to grow for several years afterwards.
On average, it is possible for anybody regardless of their current height or weight to increase in size after puberty. This can be anything between 2 and 4 inches, sometimes even more.
What you need to realize is that parts of the body can be safely stretched out to help increase your height naturally after puberty. These are such places like your spinal discs and lower back area.
Your spine and your spinal column is a very important factor in determining your height. It is estimated that it actually accounts for around 35% of your height in total. It is this spinal column that comprises of a series of smaller vertebrae bones which together make up your spine.
There are 33 of these in total and the vast majority of them are freely movable and not fused to one another. They are held in place with tough tissues and ligaments, but essentially they are movable.
In between each of these vertebrae there is a soft shock absorbing pad that acts as a cushion to absorb any of the knocks your spine may take in everyday life, so its very important that these invertebra discs provide separation and protection between your actual vertebrae.
This is where the interesting part comes in. By stretching your spinal column regularly and safely, you are able to expand these discs and lengthen your spine, this means you can grow taller naturally.
The stretching facilitates the increased level of blood flow in and around the discs which will increase in flexibility and content.
Alternatively, a lack of exercise will have the opposite effect and these discs can become stiff and loose elasticity resulting in a poor level of flexibility and a shortening of the spine too.
