Hi, im currently in the process of joining what happens if you say 2 weeks through basic training and you get an injury eg hamstring or ligament damage do you get discharged or do they give you the time to recover?
i dont have any injuries at the moment touch wood! its just im leaving a job where im well paid to join the army and i would not want to join basic training end up injuring myself then get thrown out with no job!
You will get asked if you have any injuries before and after every PT session, if you are injured you go to the med center and they will work their magic and put you in Rehab - which can include things like acupuncture.
If your injury doesn't seem to be getting better the Army will end up discharging you and probably arrange for you to start training when you are physically fit again.
If it isn't serious you'll go on the biff for your little niggling pain, and get excused of hard duties like .. marching and PT.
If it's slightly more serious you'll go physio and on the sick, just recieving on going treatment and they'll monitor your progress, however you have about 21 days sick in basic before you get backsquadded, so obviously if it's serious there's a good chance that will happen.
