  • For females it is not generally possible to increase height by natural growth at this age. By this age a female would have achieved the maximum height.

    What further can be done is some cosmetic changes by stretching exercises to open the folds in certain areas of the body, by selective dressing and by selective footwear, and selective hairstyle.
    Proper exercises enabling stretching and strengthening of the back muscles and joints at hips and limbs can help get a few millimetres in height. However that should be done only under proper supervision of an expert.

    Wearing suitable high heeled footwear can enhance height appearance.
    Dressing with clothes having vertical stripes and light colour will make appear more height.
    Suitable hairstyling can make a person appear taller. Keeping head and face suitably raised and straight,(without causing any strain) can also help appearance a taller.
    Consuming extra food and extra calories may cause gaining weight and it will work opposite to your aim and you may appear thicker and shorter.

  • By taking adequate supplement and doing stretching exercises, it is possible to increase height in certain cases in the girls specially who are below 20 yrs of age.

    As you are only 17 there are good chances that some exercises like basket ball, high jump etc may help you in achieving your objective.

    Please remember that heredity plays a major role in this and even after all the efforts being suggested there may be very little increase in the height.
