There is currently no method commercially available to lengthen your torso.  If you need to increase your height, leg lengthening is your best shot.

As far as I'm aware, there is no research on torso lengthening being done.  As I said earlier, you are better off looking into limb lengthening.

Thinking of lengthening torsos in our day and age is currently fantasy and nothing more.

Seriously guys, don't waste your time on it.

Thanks.  Would love to see more from others.  There is a lot out there. 

First, that is a far far cry from your initial statement of "Science Fiction".  But. . . .

Secondly, I could discuss this from many angles of agreement and disagreement.  Autologous Adult Stem Cells are "cheap".  Every human "cultivates" them.  Over 110 treatments, over 2100 clinical trials, and growing.  Should be relatively cheap, but not cheap like a Dollar Value Meal.  As far as time goes, time decreases with teamwork and effort.

hxxp: www. repairstemcells. org

I'd count on the private sector, not the gov.  But, yes, it seems the best angle might be "anti aging" of the discs which just so happens to be a height therapy too.  Ideally, you know to inject x to add x height reliably . . .  and ultrasounds guide the needle and measure the discs. 

Care to elaborate?

Only an open minded, progressive and enthusiastic one.  Would prefer the specialist.  Find one and send him/her our way.  Wink


please grown growth can you keep me informed on any new developments on Torso lengthening

This is idiotic. Any lengthening of the torso would have a high risk of paralysis. That's why there is no research on it...

not when you consider
when astronauts land they are 2-3" taller because  of lack of gravity
and gradually they lose the height
their spine is longer
really no BS

That's fundamentally different - it's spinal decompression, and it's the same reason that you're usually 1'' taller when you first get out of bed compared to when you go to sleep at night.  The force of your body weight compresses your spine over the course of the day.

Astronauts don't actually gain height; their spines are just decompressed.  Seriously man, drop the idea of lengthening your torso.  It's not going to happen for you, at least not in the next few decades.

Tuko, your optimism is admirable and by no means do I wish to rain on your parade.  However, I just want to point out that GrownGrowth speculates that this procedure will be possible within 2 years if everything goes to plan.  I am not trying to undermine GrownGrowth - I'm just trying to be realistic.  Hope for the best, but plan for the worst. 

Original text from GrownGrowth:
"It may be possible within 2 years if the right resources of money, time and brains were applied.  It is not likely to happen at all, but it is largely a matter of effort and luck almost as much as it is a matter of practicality; and if the pieces of science required already exist for us to use properly one might say it is mostly effort and luck. "

To answer you second question: Maybe you could try to contact GrownGrowth via PMs? The FAQ states that a new member will have to make 4 or 5 posts before you are able to send PMs (please correct me if I am wrong! :D).  It appears that you have filled that quota.

Hope this helps.

I have read all your posts and I clearly understand that you have not read any of these:-

1) FAQS
2) Diaries
3) Other important threads


Growngrowth was last active on 14th December 2009 - I dont think he is active anymore in site.

Stop acting like a fantasy kid and 1st read everything in website. MMT admin cant help you - he would have certainly yelled at you for not reading all the above. TORSO LENGTHENING is not possible.

God Bless

Living in the mountains bordering Burma and Thailand are the Kayan people, also known as Padaung.
these women strech their necks several inches with the use of rings
so it is possible to lenghten the torso without risk of paralysis since the neck area  has the Cspine nerves coming out of it and they certainly are a lot more susceptable to damage then the spinal nerves below the C collar
I am not a doctor just offering conjecture
anyone care to answer me back without sarcasm please!
this is a discussion board :)

What is wrong with you? Why won't you just do leg lengthening?

Spinal decompression is not the same as using SURGERY to lengthen the torso. I hang daily and decompress my spine, hence I have no lower back pain and gain about a half inch in height.


As for your neck example...


Quote
Many people believe that the coils force the chin upward while pressing down the collar bones and ribs, elongating the neck. However chiropractor or orthopedic surgeon will tell you that this would lead to paralysis or even death. In fact, the stretching of the neck is actually an illusion.

The rings do not cause the vertebrae to elongate, instead the weight of the rings pushes down the collar bone, as well as the upper ribs, to such an angle that the collar bone appears to be a part of the neck.

Ok, so this thread hasn't been update in nearly a year now.

I think we can all agree such procedures are mere fantasy at the moment, HOWEVER...

There is nothing to say it could be impossible.  Medical science is developing exponetially and we could yes eventually see such procedures.

But not without proper funding, or a market for the procedure, which there currently isn't.

If it's possible, don't expect anything like this to become reality for another decade at least, if it even is possible.

with so many advances in medicine and surgeries may not even exist not even something I can put padding between vertebral spaces or known "spring vertebral" we have, because when we take glucosamine increase up to a centimeter with just taking glucosamine, not to mention that in some surgeries using a cement vertebroplasty quirugico used to fill the space of the crushed vertebrae and regain the height of the vertebra when some suffered compression fractures.
Remember that sometimes accidents are discovered methods or ways to achieve something that is not wanted, so honestly I do not doubt that it is in the process something to the vertebrae.

all this, without wishing to minimize leg surgery
