You can't do anything that will make you grow taller. And depending on your age if your a teenager over the age of 18 chances are you are done growing. if you are still below the age of 14 you can ask your parents to take you to see a growth specialist who can prescribe you growth hormones. But those are risky they can lead to bone cancer.

you never know too since you are under 18 you may not have hit a growth spurt I was 4 foot ten inches at 12 then boom between 12 and 16 I shot up to 5 foot 11 inches. Girls tend to hit thier growth spurts earlier than boys boys usually get theirs between 15 and 18.

i can sort of understand swimming, but does jumping make you taller? ive heard the impact on the bones stunts growth eg. in gymnastics and ballet, thats why alot of gymnasts etc. are so short, then once they finish they start growing
