as according to your age ,bone ossification centers had fused ,,hiegh is increased by increasing bone length ,, stretching can give positive impact on muscles and to some how on bones but length doesn't effect by stretching,,hanging activities can slightly effect Ur height

The main factor that influences a person’s height is their genetic makeup. However, many other factors can influence height during development, including nutrition, hormones, activity levels, and medical conditions.
People usually grow until they reach 18 years of age. This is because growth plates tends to grow during development.
This should be understood that people can increase height during development, and wh not adults can increase their height as growth plates stop growing. Be confident about what You have and take care alot of being Yourself
I hope you got answer under scientific background..

plz be more specific to your question. at this age height can't be increased. But stretching has positive impact to improve length of shortened muscle.

Member of Marham-Forum

Researches have shown that jumping is effective in increasing height in adolescenes as it affect bones & acc. to wolf's law bones will remodel themselves in a better way. But at your age bone ossification centers are closed so it is almost dofficult to achieve your goal. However, don't lose hope. Do start jumping & some lower limb workout, as if you have strong legs they will lift you up like a heighted person.

Stretching is actually helpful in making the full length of the muscle..but as ossification of bones completed at this age and there is no bone growth..soo there will be no impact on your height physiologically.

Yes stretching of a muscle can increase a muscle lenght r a nerve lenght upto 1cm but when bone ossification starts then its difficult. Share your actual height and weight

as discussed earlier by doctors and according to researches it might be a little helpful but you have to work for a long run around 3 months or more. start doing stretches like hannging jumping and also add some part of strengthening training too. it will be much helpful for you. otherwise physically visit some good physio for assessement and exercising plan which help you out in a good way. focus on legs + back
