Height is determined mostly by our genetics. Good nutrition and active sports life in early years will help in this. You can try body stretches and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Hi Mayuri,
Yes, you can still get increase in your height.
Our physical characteristics are mostly genetically determined but there are some factors also which affects them.
These includes your hormonal balance, your diet, your body work outs, etc.
You can follow below mentioned points-

2. Skipping, swimming, cycling can also be done for this.

Male can increase the height upto the age of 21. In case of female they can increase the height upto age of 19. So you need to work out on some of the exercises and get yourself few inches added to your body. It takes time to gain height, so you have option to use cycling and running and other activities. Gymnastics also helps to gain the height. I suggest you to try some of these options and you can easily manage to keep your height growing.
