Among humans, developmental modifications result from both natural and environmental factors or pressures like cultural practices.
While this caused permanent, crippling malformation of the foot bones, it also resulted in extremely tiny feet which were considered attractive.
Parents crippled their daughters with good intentions.
Small feet made them more attractive potential marriage partners for rich important men and save them from a life of drudgery.
What makes such developmental adjustments to parts of our bodies possible is the fact that humans have a high degree of physiological plasticity .

This article will show you how to lengthen your legs naturally during and after puberty by performing leg stretching exercises that will enable you to grow taller in legs permanently . (bone development after puberty)
Outlined below are some of the Best Leg Lengthening exercises that if regulary perfomed could lengthen Legs/ Limbs naturally During and After Puberty.
Walking Jogging, and Running/ Sprinting
Sprinting lengthens bones naturally in two ways first, it increases micro fractures in the legs which may lead to bone growth in the process of healing if stretching is done with ankle weights or cycling.
Secondly, the entire body weight rests on our leg bones.
If sprinting is done regulary it leads to an increase in bone mass since the bones will have to grow thicker to accomodate the stress applied on the legs when sprinting. Its one exercise you can't miss out if you wonder how to make your legs longer naturally or how to grow bones thicker after puberty.

Jumping and Skipping Rope.
Attempt doing this exercise by jumping with both legs at the same and land on the bottom of your feet parallel to the ground.
The idea is to stamp the feet on the ground so that your leg bones grow stronger and thicker. The more often you perform this eercise and the more the number of times you skip the better.
To perform this exercise, you must have an Inversion Table.
If you don't have an inversion table you can substitute it by fastening your ankle on a hanging strap and then hang upside down.
The concept here it to stretch your lower body bones, i.e, your knee cap/ catillage and thigh joints in order to make the cartilages between the bones grow in length thus it is a perfect way to lengthen the cartilage in the knees.
This workout also has a great added advantage. Besides lengthening the lower body, this exercise also enlongates the spine as you are hang upside down with gravity force.
The longer you hang, the greater will be the results.
In fact, Inversion is considered as the ultimate Stretching exercise for increasing height naturally.
Perform the Workout at least 3 times a week for optimal results. Other wise, even every day is fine. Once completed, kicking your legs will enable your knee cartilate to grow. 3 times a week with as may hours as you can afford will do but the longer the better.
Using ankle weights
Adjustable Ankle / Wrist Weights lengthen the legs through stretching and lengthening the cartilage between your knees.
It could also lengthen the shin bones if used immediately after sprinting since sprinting creates microfractures and ankle weights can enlongate the fractures which leads to bone lengthening as the microfractures heal. so it's another great method if you wonder how to grow your shin.
The downside of this exercise is the numbness in the feet which may prevent you from sticking them on for long thus constantly massaging the feet every couple of minutes is required to keep blood flowing into the feet.
This is the reason its not easy to do this exercise while sleeping thus its recommended to do it during day.
Sit on a high chair or lay on a bed high enough to allow the feet hang freely and use anAnkle weight fastener to add weights to your ankle.
Start with small weights and gradually increase as you progress, stretching your legs down freely with the pressure of the weights.
