Flat feet

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. Is it a medical fail to have flat feet? I noticed anothermedicalpost about feet, but nothing was really said asto what the lad was worried about in the medical.

    cheers

  2. I asked this to a recruiter recently mate and the answer I got was that they access each person individually. So your GP would send your info to the ADSC and if they thought you were suitable for training etc, you should be fine :wink:
     
  3. Depends on how bad they are, I've seen plenty of recruits get issued orthotics (both off the shelf and custom made) so they can continue training.
     
  4. if you are in no pain with them normally, you will be fine.
     
  5. yeah your right, tyhey can flatten out during the course of your career, i have been wearing the insoles now for about 2 years, they do help a little but not a great deal. however they have not trained the arch to be an arch again they are still as flat as ever.
