Grow Taller After Puberty

Usually, people say and feel that after the age of 18, the growth is limited. Moms repeatedly tell their wards, “run and exercise now before you grow out of the growing period.” It is a usual ideology; not really unwarranted as it has a little science attached to the fact. But, science usually has answers to various problems. In this case too, it has good answers about how to grow taller after puberty.

After puberty, the growth areas or growth plates in the long bones fuse together obstructing any more growth. This is the reason there is said to be no area for growth, medically of course. But many people have grown taller even after puberty.

So, individuals, who want to grow taller after puberty, can concentrate on other areas – the spine and the knee cartilage.

The spine has bones that are never fused together except the lowest nine. Between the bones, there is cartilage called as a spinal disk; which helps in cushioning impacts. These disks can be stimulated to thicken and the length of your back can be increased. This requires simple exercises like swimming, hanging that stimulate the secretion of the Growth Hormone by the pituitary gland. This directly increases your height.

Simultaneously, you can work on the knee cartilage too to thicken it and thus, grow taller after puberty. The knee cartilage will have to be subjected to a lot of stress and accurate exercises to increase its length and width. This exercise is called as Micro Fracture & Ankle Weights technique. Eventually, the knee cartilage gets used to these exercises.

It is also found that more than one session of exercise in a day increases the amount of Growth Hormone secreted during the entire day. This shows that having multiple exercising periods during a day can increase the range of your growth. Not to forget, the amount of good sleep that is quintessential, during which the maximum amount of Growth Hormone is secreted.

These measures help break the myth that people can’t grow taller after a certain age, especially after puberty.
