>>7790502 LSJL has actually worked in some cases and in theory it seems like it makes sense, though I don't know enough about biology/anatomy to verify if the inner workings of the process could work. It basically says you need to apply pressure on the synovial joint of the lower femur and upper and lower femur, thus (Copy pasted it from a website): 1. The compression causes the interstitial fluid inside to increase in flow downwards into the diaphysis and also causing the hydrostatic pressure in the hollow cavity in the bone to increase. Since we are pushing on the bone, the cavity should get smaller so the pressure inside should increase. This increase to hydrostatic pressure is theorized to increase or assist the stem cells to turn into chondrocytes (aka differentiation).
2. This causes the stem cells in the bone marrow in the medullary cavity to turn themselves into chondrocytes. The newly formed chondrocytes can then more readily go through the process of mitosis and endochondral ossification, which would lead to long bone lengthen, leading to height increase.
If the answer to both of these questions is yes, then you will, unless in a highly unlikely case, end up tall yourself too. If the answer to one of these questions is no, then you have about a 50% chance of inheriting the right genes and growing tall yourself too. If the answer to both of these questions is no, then you're pretty much fucked statistically.
My father for example was 6'4" peak height, and my mother was 5'5". I am 6' myself, and have three sisters, two of which hover around the 5'6" mark, and one that's 5'9.5". So basically, only one of us, the taller sister, inherited the tall genes from my dad. I ended up at 6', which is not small by any means, but more on the average side than the tall side.
Similarly I know someone who has a 5'9" father and a 5'9" mother, and two out of three brothers are well over 6'2" tall, and one is 5'11". So two out of three got the mother's tall gene, and the other one got his father's average gene.
