Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sitn:
    Sh*gged right ankle due to fracture and ligament tear. Associated dropped arch and now knee and hip issues.

    Can anyone recommend a decent sports injury expert/orthotist or podiatrist who is basedin the Edinburgh area. Just need someone I can trust and get it right first time. Mountain marathon coming up and training is pants due to all issues above.

    Cheers

  2. Try FASIC, based in the Edinburgh Uni Sports Centre, 46 Pleasance. 0131 650 2589.
     
  3. Or Stuart Barton ex British Lions and Scotland RFU physioterrorist is based in Anstruther if you fancy a trip. He does sometimes work out of Edinburgh but that may have changed. He's very good through and not too expensive.
     
  4. Seconded - FASIC are excellent. They are one of the few sites approved by sportscotland for "elite athletes", so you're in good hands there.
