The only way it can give you height is maybe if you're muscles aren't supporting your body well and as a result you're slouching. Improved muscular structure will help you stand more erect. Other than that, I don't think so. I don't know that it would ever cripple your height. I guess if you're still growing and you put your body through a very tough regimen it might stunt your growth, but I don't know this to be the case. I've never heard this or read it anywhere.
