Bone Growth At The Age Of 22 Years?
Good afternoon my name is rehan age 22 I want to ask about growth why is this the end “I feel the growth of my body but the dominance at the bottom or legs … so every week I immediately increase height in my legs or my waist extends .. so my upper body or spine doesn’t look too tall
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Before I want to make sure in advance, do you really take objective measurements of your height and length of your legs and length?
Basically in adolescence, height increase is more common in long bones (such as the femur, shin, shin, bones in the hand) compared to the bones in the body (such as the backbone). This is because the growth plates do exist in these long bones. Therefore, it is very normal for adolescents to have more growth in long bones than in bones in the body.
However, in general, a man will stop growing taller at the age of 18-20 years when the growth plates in his long bones have closed (most people have stopped growing tall at the age of 18). High growth is very, very rare beyond the age of 20 years. Some conditions that can cause a high increase in a man past the age of 20 are late puberty and gigantism. If indeed you objectively measure height increase in your age which has reached 22 years, you should check with your internal medicine doctor to see further whether there are certain hormonal disorders that you have.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
