* Your ability to grow taller depends on your age. Adults, however, cannot grow taller. * I do not accept that just because you are 18 your are and adult and your growing has completed. Humans can continually grow after the age of 18 has arrived. As a human you will officially stop growing at the age of 25. You will then know for sure what your definite height will be. Also, as an adult you may strink because the cushioning in your spine lessens and you may become slightly shorter. As you may already know...the spine accounts for about 35 % of your current height. This means that fixing postural or spinal problems can result to a substantial increase in your height from 2 to 6 inches. The first main spinal problem can be excessive curvatures of the spine which come from genetics and environmental factors which can rob you several inches of height. You can also learn how to correct the "over compression of the spine". This occurs when there is compression of the protective fluid sacks found between each of your vertebrae which leads to inches of height loss. There is a very easy way to test the effect of spinal compression. All you need to do is measure yourself tonight before you go to bed. Then do the same thing tomorrow morning. You'll be surprised to find that you are anything from 1/2 an inch to 2 inches taller in the morning. Why? The height difference is due to the decompression of your spine while you sleep horizontally on your bed.
