Doctor :   Let me explain to you.
User :   Yes sir
Doctor :   According to the present medical science facts in the absence of medical illness such as growth hormone deficiencies, endocrinopathies, height growth ceases to occur after completion of 18 years.

Doctor :   You can consult a physiotherapist who can examine your spine and will teach you with back straightening exercises.

Doctor :   and the result that you see will be a very small one - just a few centimeters.
Doctor :   Special nutritional supplements or pills are not going to be effective.
