Sistering joists for one room


I am in the process of remodeling my bathroom in my 1890 home, and I have come to realize that the floor is more uneven than I originally thought.

I would like to run sister joists, but I cannot run them the whole length of the original joist as it goes into other rooms. Can I run sister joist just the length of the room- about 6ft? There are no structural issues just settling.

Best, Rich
