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. Around 4 years ago I had injections in my spine due to back pain which will be on my medical docs. Since I no longer suffer with back pain and I am wondering whether this will stop me from being able to join the TA?
     
  2. No idea sorry mate, but no harm in trying!

    How old are you, what kind of injections for what kind of back problem?
     
  3. I was in 3 Para originaly and had no problems with my back, then after coming out I had back pain for a period of about 2 years. Anyway I was sent to the hospital where I was given steriod injections around my lumbar vertibra which did not work. This was 4 years ago and I have never suffered since..
