hi welcome to Health Care Magic,
the good thing is that, he is better now & is able to do normal work & also play. there are no vitamins that would improve his condition more. normal diet with good exercise to strengthen leg muscles is good enough to improve. tkcr

Thanks for posting your query.

Height is decided with many factors of which genetic component also plays a important role.

It goes with the height of the parents particularly father.

Also other important factor is diet. Multivitamins can be supplemented along with healthy diet.

Growth spurt occurs at 13 - 14 years.

He would still grow further since it is not the final age for the stoppage of growth.

Even Psychological factors like healthy environment are essential.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
