Flat Foot in Army

29 comments
Flat Foot in Military:-

     The Medical board check the candidates for their foot condition.  They check whether the foot is flat or normal foot, or it has any deformality that which can be unmasked in future.  So have a knowledge about this test before going to the selection process.
   
People having space between their feet and ground (arch space) is called as normal feet.

     People having no space or very less space comparatively between their feet and ground (arch space) is called Flat Foot

     Flat Foot is common in children because of baby fat.  But after certain age of growth, it reduces and foot looks normal.  Flat food is a big issue in Army or Military medical check ups, since flat foot persons cant able to run fastl or else they cant able to climb up the mountain.(Trekking).  So it is a rejection in medical boards.

     A recent study states that nearly 20% of the population are having flat foot, it may also due to hereditary causes.

Treatment for Flat Foot:-

     Some yoga asanas are suggested by physiotherapist to treat the flat foots.  Also walking with bare foot in beech soil is a good treatment for flat foot as it gives good workout of the foot muscles.

These are about flat foot.  Before going to defense selection process check yourself for these condition and get proper advise from doctors.
