You probably have one last growth spurt possible before you attain 21 yrs age. But it depends on your level of physical activity especially outdoor sport activities. Lengthening of bones in terms of height especially depends on the amount and frequency of weight bearing on them.
Next Steps
Discuss and seek advice from an orthopedician and obtain the right exercise prescription from a physiotherapist
