welcome to healthcaremagic forum

Please mention your age. If you are under 25, swimming/tennis, acitivites involving whole body (not gym) will help increase height.
I am sure you must be taking good amount and quality proteins and calcium...if not please do.
Max height of a person depends on his genes, i.e. how tall his father, brother, uncles, and 1st degree relatives are.

Hi !
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Attaining tall height is absolutely a heredetory factor which depends on our genes which we carry from your parents. But if you are still in growing age i.e.till 22-24 , then regular swimming, taking protein and calcium will definately help you at certain extent. Wish you a good luck.

Thanks and take care.

i m fine;your height is ok at 5/9 but you will have to tell your age also.Height of a person can increase upto age of 24 yrs in males.if you are younger than that i suppose that you are then it will surely increase.Also genetically if your parents are good in height then you will also be tall .rely on nature it will do what is best for you .Remember your expertise more than your height will bring you ahead in sports.
