Try doing pilates. It will give you better posture, which will make you appear taller.

1) At 17, one still has 5 to 7 years of growth left. 2) 5'7" is just slightly below average height for men, and above average for women-- not "short" or anything to worry about. 3) Height is mainly determined by genetics. If one's parents are of shorter or taller stature, then the offspring tends to fall inside that same scale. (me: dad: 5'10", mom 5'5"-- I'm 5'8".) 4) As previous replies indicated, posture is a big deal in how tall you appear top other people. 5) If one goes around seeing themselves as "short" or "fat" or "ugly," people around them will see them as such as well. I have no idea why this happens, but it does.

I really don't think that any exercises will make your bones longer, buit make sure you eat right and get all the nutrients. Be Patient also. I just grew an inch in a matter of months and I thought I was done growing. Last but not least, there's nothing wrong with being short. People come in all shapes and sizes.

No excercise actually makes you taller. However you can make yourself appear taller. Pilates is designed to give you longer leaner muscles, so I highly recommend it. A lot of celebs use it to get that long lean look. !

There is nothing you can really do to make yourself grow taller. You are who you are, and that's something to be proud of. Eating a healthy diet and always making sure you get a good amount of excersize done each week, you will grow up strong and tall.(Sometimes people don't grow as tall as they should because of a no excersize and an unhealthy diet.)
