Unfortunately, there is no medication, nutritional supplements or walking shoes that will increase your length. You can however, consult an orthopaedic surgeon regarding a bone stretching procedure. This is a tidious procedure where the bones in your legs are broken and then stretched over a long period of time.

Kind regards
