Can stretches and exercise effect height?
post #1

I read on a blog that doing these regularly can add up to a whole inch on your height, even in your 20s, 30s, and beyond. Anyone every hear of this?

I have heard this too but I think this is only the case if you have VERY bad posture. I mean like back issues and what not.

I have heard of this and know it can make a difference for some people but as Hunter said, I think you have to have a curved spine. You can't stretch your legs any longer, the best you can do is straighten out the spine.

I agree witht his. I mean I can see this being the best case of the height inscrease with stretching. I have heard yoga stretches the spine but it can't be more than like a qtr of an inch.
