Hello,

     You might grow a little bit.So can do stretching exercises,regular walking.Have good protein diet.Eat lots of fruits and leafy vegetables,nuts check your Vit D3.If it is on the lower side correct it immediately with Vit D supplements.because Vit D deficiency leadts to deficient calcium absorption which inturn  is required for bone growth.
