Losing height

I have always been quite tall (6'4.5"). Recently a friend asked to measure me for a statistics project. I was alarmed to see that I was barely 6'3", especially because I am only 22. I have been an avid weightlifter for the past 6 yrs and have had a few injuries, but nothing serious (never required a doctor visit). Once I became consious of the height issue, I noticed I had developed a slight stoop. Have I permanantly damaged my spine? Will I get this height back?
