We have known for a long time that if we tried to do some types of physical therapy and chiropractor techniques of decompressing the intervertebral discs, we can gain some temporary height, but I have recently started to believe that some of that height we gain might not be temporary, but much more permanent. When I did research on the words “spinal manipulation height increase” into Google I found some old sources I had used before as well as previous articles that I had written about the subject of decompressing the spine. The article “Can you grow an inch in a week?” Revealed that after a women went through various types of techniques
- She gained 1/2 of an inch after 3 sessions using Pilates
- She gained 1 full inch after 3 inches using the Alexander Method
- She gained 1/4th of an inch after going to the chiropractor.
There is a website called the Cox Technic which claims that by using their chiropractor machine called the Cox Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression you can increase the disk height by 17%.
There was the older post I wrote “Increase Height And Grow Taller Through Non Surgical Spinal Decompression Using Spinal Decompression Therapy” which I showed that the whole process is completely legitimate, at least for temporary effect. However the question was always over how effective was it for long term success.
I would find another source Here which revealed that the disk height increase after spinal decompression would be 1-2 mm for each lumbar vertebrate bone.
In the study Radiographic disk height increase after a trial of multimodal spine rehabilitation and vibration traction: a retrospective case series the experimenters used a type of rehabilitation therapy technique known as lumbar vibration traction in the spinal decompression therapy.
There was only 6 patients involved and 1 of them was actually removed to make the data set more smooth. The result was “…achieved improved disk height in 3 of 5 lumbar disks on plain film radiography”. What was shown from the table of disks height was on average an increase of around 1-2 mm for each vertebrate.
The member at the Make Me Taller Forums also made the same theoretical pitch which they called the Intra-Spinal Treatment.
What I am currently proposing is that if we used something like the DRX9000 Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Machine, (which most medical physicians think is a over-expensive scam product. It might not work at all) to achieve the 1-2 cm of temporary height increase it can definitely do, we might be able to combine it with oral consumption of the compounds…
- Hyaluronic Acid (aka Hyaluronan) – Dosage: Unknown at this time
- Glucosamine Sulfate – Dosage: 1000-1500 mg daily (Buy it from Amazon here)
- Chondroitin Sulfate – Dosage: 1000 daily
This compounds are in the family of the type of organic compound that the GAGS (glycoaminoglycans), Aggrecan, and Proteoglycans are made of which are found in the cartilage and tendon-like tissue found in the intervertebral discs. They are the compounds that make up over 90% of all of the extracellular matrix in cartilage tissue and tendons, forming the Collagen Type 2 and Collagen type 10 (ColX) found in hyaline cartilage.
A recent commenter did note that after they took glucosamine sulfate (either 1000 mg or 1500 mg) for 3 months, they increased their height by 1/2 cm, which is quite a increase just from oral consumption of a supplement. I spent over half an hour trying to track down that comment made on this website from the hundreds of comments made this recent month but could not find it, clip it, and paste it here showing the actual comment as complete proof. I personally am taking 2 pills of glucosamine sulfate at 500 mg every day myself. What I can show you guys is a picture of my right hand holding the Glucosamine Sulfate 500 mg that I have been taking 2 a day which I bought in Korea –Buy it (at 1000 mg) here from Amazon to help fund the website (I’ll get about $2.50 as an affiliate if you buy the supplement from Amazon)
The combination could lead to upwards of a full 1 cm of permanent height increase which would not go away unless one drastically changes one’s lifestyle and exercise routine. It might sound like much to get just 1 cm but it would a start. This is the real thing.
