You dont know if your plates have closed. Only way to find out is going to the doctor and getting it examined.
The only ways I know to increase height are low doses of non aromatizable steroids or growth hormone. Neither of which I condone at your age
But instead of being self righteous and saying dont do it, go and talk to your doctor and discuss the possible options.

please tell me what your doctor says, im very interested in his comments. (you dont have to if you dont want to, im just curious)

I wear lifts . . no one notices.
I dont think there is anything you can do, dont you think if it was possible the solution would be marketted and the NBA wouldnt have those short 6 ft 9 in guys?
And what would happen to the midget population . . . extinct!!!

I think Muscletech makes a product called Tall Parents Xtreme V2.
This will get the job done.

lolololol funny stuff, dude in all honesty you cant control your height without HGH and that would be an even dumber idea than getting a new pair of legs......if your growth plates havent closed you should still be growing.....

go to a history museum or museum of torture and see if they have a piece of apparatus called " the rack " Basically your hands are secured and your ankles are tied to a rope which is connected to a wheel . The wheel is turned which pulls on your legs and so you stretch . You will however have to find a museum that will loan you the equipment and a friend who will secure you to a rope and turn the wheel. It will however hurt.
i should stay as you are .

You can go talk to a doc about your options but i doubt they will want to do any type of treatments to increase your height your 5 6 not 4 6 and if growth plates have not closed in your opinion then you are still growing,hold old are you i did not see that.

dude, the only way to increase your height is by doing something like yoga to straighten the spine as much as possible and even then you might only gain an inch from corrected posture.
the only GH that is obtainable is from a doctor and any supplement that advertises it's self as a GH product is marketing B.S.
there's always the stretching rack?

Go to GNC and I guarantee the Clerk there will sell you Something that probably cost at least $60.00 and will make you tall as hell.

I saw all these replies to this thread and thought to myself "oh god these people actually think supplements can increase your height..."
You're stuck with what you got, sorry! (Coming from a 6'4" person hah)

growth hormone injections work but you have to start when you're a child..and I believe therapy lasts for years and thats to gain maybe an inch or two.

As previously stated you should medical evidence, x-ray or MRI confirming that your growth plates have yet to "seal". Then you should get a basic blood test to analyze hormone levels. HGH therapy may be warranted if levels are low. Otherwise I would stick with low dose AIs or SERMs for at least a year's usage. There's a number of studies showing it works well in adolescents ~15yo. And why I can't absolutely state it will work I have half a dozen cases to believe it does. Height increases are mostly extrapolated from comparisons with siblings but on average 4 inches is not uncommon but again might well be within standard deviation but this would be an uncanny coincidence.

Hard to find clothes that fit (especially at sale prices), hard to get into or out of cars, ceiling fans make us nervous, and I personally keep my chiropractor in coin by slamming my head against things some short person thought was "high enough"...several times a week (I've started wearing a hat w/ a brim: it warns me when I'm about to hit my head on something).
Soon, though, I'll be strong enough to lift women to a decent kissing altitude (why oh why do the tall women date the shorties? Breaks my heart - and messes w/ my neck)....

Of COURSE! WHY didn't I think of that? I have a couple Victorias-Secret models laying around here somewhere, musta forgot about 'em...
Still does nothing about them preferring short f@kkers - I think it's a self-esteem issue (of theirs).

There is actually an accepted medical procedure in which they insert rods into your legs, break the bone, pull the bone slightly apart until the bone regrows towards itself and then repeat.
I'm told it's incredibly painful and requires 1-2 years to effectively add a couple of inches. But hell, who cares if makes you two inches taller! (/sarcarsm)
