With flat feet take in the army

Is it taken to the army with flat feet of 1, 2 or 3 degrees?

At a certain age, the question often arises, how compatible are the flat feet of 1, 2 or 3 degrees and the army? Moreover, this is a rather common disease, flat feet of different degrees of complexity is very common. What is characteristic, run and load on the foot with such a disease are contraindicated, and the army ignores these contraindications. As a result, the disease in 2 years can seriously progress. Let's see what legislators of such countries as Russia, Ukraine and Belarus think about it.

How to be guided by a conscript?

flatfoot and army

To go or not to go, that's the question. .

As the largest of the countries in question is Russia, we'll start with it. In this case, the draftee should read the latest edition of Regulation No. 123 dated 25.02.2003, namely, "the schedule of illnesses. People with flat feet are particularly interested in the article number 68 of the section on musculoskeletal diseases. Having carefully studied this document, you will figure out yourself, "threatens" you with going to the army, or not.

A similar document in Ukraine is article 62 of the section "Diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissues, their consequences", which is included in the "Order of Diseases, Conditions and Physical Deficiencies that determine the degree of fitness for military service".This document was approved by the order of the Minister of Defense of Ukraine No. 402 of August 14, 2008.Here you will find information on how to treat this disease when invoking the Ukrainian army.

It is recommended that Belarusians read article No.68 "Instructions on determining the requirements for the state of health of citizens with an addendum to the conscription section, conscription for urgent military service, reserve service, military service of reserve officers. ..".The title of the document is very long, so we give only the first part of it. This instruction was approved by Decree of the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Health No. 51/170 of December 20, 2010.

It should be noted that in this case the legislators of all three countries showed a rare unanimity, the issue of flatfoot 1 st, 2 nd, 3 rd degree and service in the army is considered everywhere the same way, and if you read the documents carefully, it seems thatthey were written by the same person, only in different languages. In general, we can say that the flat feet of the army of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia are perceived almost identically. How exactly - we look further.

On which groups in the army are flatfoot divided?

As we have already understood the similarity of documents, we will consider the matter in general. So, in all the lists there is a division of the disease into 4 groups.

Group "a" understands a serious violation of functions with flat feet, in this case the draftee falls into the category "D" and is considered unfit for service in the army.

Group "b" implies a moderate disruption of functions with flat feet, in this case the recruit is waiting for the category "B" - is limited( suitable for peacetime).Such a person receives a military ticket and goes to the reserve, he is released from the draft. A man of this category can be called into the army only in wartime.

Clause "c" describes minor violations of functions with flatfoot, in this case the recruit is waiting for all the same category "B".

The item "g" implies no violation of functions when there is objective data. Here the category "B-3" already goes, it is fit to serve in the army, except for some kind of troops. It should be noted that in the Ukrainian law the category does not sign, people with the item "g" simply get the status "good", but it does not change the essence.

What are the degrees of flatfoot and diagnoses

degrees of flatfoot

Degrees of flatfoot

When determining the degree of flatfoot, the physician should be guided by:

  • the description of the radiograph in the standing position under the load. This description is made by the radiologist, it is he who determines the height and angle of the longitudinal arch;
  • angle of Beler, which determines the degree of deformation of the calcaneal brush;
  • computed tomography, which is performed in the coronary plane and should assess the condition of the subtalar joint;
  • description of the parameters of the angular deviations of the first finger and the first metatarsal bone.

The diagnoses for position number 123 are distributed as follows:

a) horse, varus, hollow, heel, equinovarus, flat-valgus deformed foot, which was formed as a result of injuries or diseases, preventing the use of military footwear;B) third degree of flatfoot( transverse or longitudinal);

c) 2nd degree of flatfoot( only with arthrosis of the 2nd degree);

d) 1 st or 2 nd degree of flatfoot( with deforming arthrosis 1 st degree in the absence of contracture of fingers and exostoses).

The article states that flat feet of 1-2 degrees not accompanied by osteoarthritis is not an obstacle for military service.

It follows that the longitudinal or transverse flat feet of the first and second degree will not cause the conscript to be placed in any of the "unpreserved" categories unless it is burdened by other diseases, but those recruits who have found the third degree of flatfoot are "unfitin peacetime "and released from draft.

Who determines the degree of flatfoot?

This is the task of a doctor in a polyclinic, namely an orthopedic surgeon. Based on the above documents, he must draw a conclusion and make a diagnosis. Military commissioner himself can not diagnose , he simply does not have the right to do so. His task is only to determine the level of fitness for the service in accordance with the diagnosis of the doctor.


Is an army with flat feet 1 and 3 degrees?

  • 3.2 Can I enter a military school with a flat foot?

Many young men of military age and their parents are interested in the question: are they taking to the army with a flatfoot? After all, the information exchanged for conscripts is very contradictory. Some say that they do not take such a violation in the army, others prove the opposite. Each of them is right, but only in part. In this case, everything depends on the degree of this disease.

To understand all the nuances, it is necessary to present in general terms what is flatfoot and how dangerous is it? And why can not they join the army with this disease?

What is a platypodia?

The leg of an adult person should normally be based on three main points - the calcaneus and two metatarsals on the first and fifth fingers. Connecting together, these points form vaults that help to maintain balance and act as a shock absorber when walking.

But sometimes there is a deformation, in which the vaults become flatter and drop. If the changes affect the transverse arch, the bones of the fingers diverge, the largest of them deviates outward, the length of the foot decreases. As a result, a transverse flat foot appears.

For longitudinal deformation, the flattening of the corresponding arch is characteristic. The length of the foot in this case increases, and the sole completely touches the floor.

Quite often these two types of deformation can occur simultaneously.

In any case, the stop loses its cushioning function, and all the load goes to the joints of the legs. And since they are not designed for such work, as a result, a person begins to feel pain in the legs, back. Also, his posture is developing incorrectly and arthrosis of scoliosis may occur.

Degrees of foot deformation

Depending on the size of the arch of the foot, I distinguish several types of flatfoot. In total, 3 degrees are distinguished:

  1. The first disease is a cosmetic defect and proceeds practically without symptoms. One of its manifestations may be a feeling of fatigue in the legs and their swelling after a significant load. Also, a person can feel pain by pressing on the foot.
  2. At the 2nd degree, flat feet is of moderate nature. You can notice changes in the foot with the naked eye. There are characteristic symptoms in the form of pain, change in gait. Pain can reach the knee joints.
  3. At the 3rd degree of the disease there is a complete deformation of the feet. This deviation from the norm is called pronounced. A person feels severe pain in the feet, legs, lower back, swelling of the legs. The person's work capacity is reduced, even ordinary walking tours cause a lot of inconvenience and require effort. Violated functions in the locomotor apparatus, there is the possibility of scoliosis, arthritis, osteochondrosis. Such a picture is more typical of a longitudinal formation.

These degrees concern both longitudinal and transverse flatfoot. The picture is aggravated if there is a mixed pathology.

The first degree of transverse flatfoot is also characterized by the fact that the big toe is deflected by about 20 degrees, and the skin beneath it turns red. On the soles appear on the soles. At the 2-nd degree the symptoms increase somewhat. The thumb is deflected by 25-35 degrees, the corns are enlarged. The pain becomes more prolonged.

For the third degree of longitudinal flatfoot, sharply deformed toward the thumb and inflamed joint is characteristic. All the other fingers resemble a hammer.

How is the expiration category defined?

Service in the army, as well as the call to it - the procedure is serious. There are a number of laws that regulate it. There are among them those that relate to the state of health of the draftee. If we talk about flatfoot, then it is regulated by a separate article of the Schedule of Diseases.

Why did the issue of conscription with this violation become so relevant right now? The fact is that in 2014 some changes were made to the article, namely, the requirements for this disease were increased. A few other rules will now apply for draftees in 2015 and beyond. According to the regulatory documents, the disease is divided into four groups:

  1. Group "A" involves a serious disruption of functions caused by flat feet. In this case, there is an irreversible, pronounced curvature of the foot, which does not allow wearing army shoes. The conscript receives the category "D" and is considered unfit for service.
  2. Group "B" implies an average disruption of functions in the body with flat feet. The conscript is assigned the category "B" - is limited. He is given a military ticket and can be called only in case of war.
  3. Group "B" provides for minor dysfunction of the foot, which is accompanied by moderate pain. Such changes allow wearing military-style footwear, adapting it in a certain way. The conscript in this case is assigned the same category of validity "B".He will be called only in time of war.
  4. Group "G" is characterized by the availability of data on flatness, but without disrupting the function. In this case, the recruit is assigned a category of validity "B-3".He will be recruited in the armed forces. In this case, restrictions may apply to certain groups of troops.

Understand what is meant by serious, and that under minor violations, you can refer to the schedule of illnesses. Since the manifestation of the disease may be different, a reasonable question arises: with what flat-footedness in the army is not taken?

Which category can I serve?

Since 2015, Group A includes all types of flatfoot with a strong deformity of the foot, Group B includes longitudinal and transverse flat feet of the third degree with obvious pain syndrome and limited mobility of the fingers. Another sign is the presence of arthrosis of the foot.

The group "c" includes a lowering of the longitudinal arch of the third degree without deforming arthrosis in the joints. The group "G" includes flat feet of 2 degrees, both longitudinal and transverse.

Since only conscripts who have the diseases of group "B" and "B" are exempt from conscription, it becomes obvious that young people diagnosed with the 3rd degree of the disease will not be called up for service.

This concerns a disease affecting both the longitudinal and transverse arch.1-2 degree of deformation is not the basis for exemption from military service. The conscript receives the category "B-3" and will be called up for service on a general basis, but with some restrictions.

Flatfoot and army

Why can not they take to the army with a flat foot? Shoes in the army are quite rough and have a completely flat sole. With a constant toe, it adversely affects the foot. If the soldier has a flat foot, rough shoes will further exacerbate him. As a result, knee and hip joints will suffer, changes in the movement of the pelvic bones will occur, and problems with the lumbar department will begin.

That is, flat feet, aggravated, can entail deformation of the spine.

Can I enter a military school with a flat foot?

No less important is the question: will they take to the military school with a flat foot? For many guys military service is a dream from childhood, but sometimes the state of health does not allow to serve in the army. If the platypodia is not severe, then it is possible to study at a military school.

If the applicant has a flat foot 2 degrees, this is not an obstacle for admission to the military school. By law, such a diagnosis does not prevent enrollment.

If the disease is aggravated by a deforming osteoarthritis of the 2 nd degree, then the military school of the entrant will not be taken unequivocally.

Also applies to the lowering of the arch of the foot of the third degree. Flat feet and physical activities are incompatible. In the army, sports can not be avoided. This is the main reason why such a violation can not be taken to the military school.


Does the army take a flat-footed third degree?

Katrina Gamer

Flat feet always( let the radiologists forgive me, if I was too categorical) is accompanied by arthrosis.
If you have a third degree of flatfoot, and any degree of arthrosis, then by law you are no good.
If you have a II degree of flatfoot, and II( and higher) degree of arthrosis, then by law you are no good.
Anything below II degree of flatfoot with II arthrosis is not suitable for not going into the army.
If you are told in a military registration and enlistment office that you are fit with the above diagnoses, then they violate the law and if you have pictures and any other evidence of the disease, you can file a complaint and win this case. While the case is under consideration in court, you have no right to withdraw to the army until the court makes a decision.
You still need knowledge of the law because in one article I can not tell you all the subtleties. Most importantly, always keep in mind:
1) Do not believe anyone in the military enlistment office. Their goal is to call you into the army by any means. They are ready for much, because they need, for one call, to call out a limited number of people, this is called a "plan".
2) Remember that the law is written for everyone, including for government agencies. If the law says one thing, and another says in the military registration and enlistment office, remember that the law is higher than the words of military commissar employees.
3) The military registration and enlistment offices have great connections. If you were given a referral to some hospital, do not go there for anything, there are all your own! What is the purpose of the military commissariat? That's right, to take you into the army, so the result of the survey is unlikely to please you. Remember that by law you have the right to choose a doctor for examination. Choose another hospital and be examined there. If they start digging, poke a muzzle into the law or file a lawsuit. Do not be shy, you'll be right, and the military enlistment office knows it.
4) Do not leave originals of medical data in the military registration and enlistment office. This can include pictures, honey.card, various certificates, etc. Often the military registration and enlistment office loses certain documents. Of course, specifically. Therefore, the availability of documents should be recorded not in the military registration and enlistment office.
5) Remember that absolutely healthy people do not exist in nature. And as the doctors say, "There are no healthy people, there are underdeveloped

I am the mother of the former draftee." He also had a flat foot of the third degree, plus the consequences of a serious injury. Frankly, if I had not surrendered my son to a commission at the military enlistment officeeven tried to prove that he was fit, and even tried to have money, but the warning that we would meet in court, plus the whole card of my son, numbered, scanned, and it all at the end of the card fixed, had a photocopy on my handshoney documentI had a preliminary talk with the pre-med commission, Only after that was found unfit, and the regional commission confirmed: One advice, do not give pictures, they should be with you, before deciding on worthlessness, since any conclusions are well lost,pictures, etc., the truth when you offer a copy are immediately there, and do not be afraid if they threaten the psychiatric hospital, it's their usual course, behave calmly and firmly. It was after such threats that I had to talk on the topic of the court. Good luck to you, and it is better to connect a mother or father, since parents are considered more, though they try to fuck money with their parents, there is a need for firmness.

Does the army take a flat-footed third degree?


do not call!!!there is a disease schedule! !!!and do not listen to all kinds of vaglak!!!if anything, go to court!

Zulya Abbasova

sometimes take sometimes no

Katyusha Cheremisina

It seems there is no


Actually it should not. But now in my opinion, because of the shortage, they take both oblique and curved


Do not join the army:
Flattening and other deformities of the foot:
- Moderately pronounced deformities of the foot with a minor pain syndrome and a violation of the statics, in which you can adapt to wearing the shoes of an establishedmilitary model;
- Pediatric flatfoot III degree without valgus calcaneus and the phenomena of deforming arthrosis in the joints of the middle foot;
- Pedigree or transverse flat feet of II degree with deforming arthrosis of the II stage of joints of the middle part of the foot;
- Deforming arthrosis of the first metatarsal joint of the III stage with restriction of movements within the plantar flexion of less than 10 degrees and dorsiflexion less than 20 degrees;
-Post-traumatic deformity of the calcaneus with a decrease in the angle of Beler from 0 to -10 degrees and the presence of arthrosis of the subtalar joint.


None. I was not picked up with the 2nd.but did

take an army with a flat-footed second degree with arthrosis change?

Inspector No. 108

In accordance with clause "d" of article 68 of the disease schedule, approved. RF Government Resolution No. 123 of February 25, 2003( flatfoot and other foot deformities in the presence of objective data without disrupting functions)
With longitudinal or transverse flattenes of I or II degree with deforming arthrosis of the first stage of the joints of the middle part of the foot in the absence of the contracture of its fingers and exostoses, the citizenANNIVERSARY TO THE MILITARY SERVICE WITH MENTAL RESTRICTIONS and is called up for military service on general grounds.
Longitudinal flatfoot and hammer-like calcaneal deformation of the calcaneus are assessed by profile radiographs in the standing position under load. On the X-ray diffraction patterns, the angle of the longitudinal arch and the height of the arch are determined by constructing a triangle. Normally the angle of the arch is 125-130 degrees, the height of the arch is 39 mm. Flattening of I degree: the angle of the longitudinal internal sole of the arch is 131-140 degrees, the height of the arch is 35-25 mm;flat feet of II degree: the angle of the longitudinal inner vault is 141-155 degrees, the height of the vault is 24-17 mm;flat feet of the third degree: the angle of the longitudinal inner arch is more than 155 degrees, the height of the arch is less than 17 mm.
To determine the degree of posttraumatic deformation of the calcaneus, calculate the angle of Beler( the angle of the articular part of the calcaneus calcaneus), formed by the intersection of two lines, one of which connects the highest point of the anterior angle of the subtalar joint and the apex of the posterior articular facet, and the other passes along the upper surface of the buttock pitbones. Normally this angle is 20-40 degrees. Its reduction usually accompanies posttraumatic platypodia. The most informative for assessing the condition of the subtalar joint is its computed tomography, performed in the coronary plane perpendicular to the posterior joint facet of the calcaneus. The transverse flatfoot is estimated from the radiographs of the anterior and middle parts of the foot in a straight projection, made under load. Reliable criteria for the degree of transverse flatfoot are the parameters of the angular deviations of the first metatarsus and the first finger. On X-ray patterns, three straight lines are drawn corresponding to the longitudinal axes of I-II metatarsal bones and the main phalange of the first finger. At I degree of deformation, the angle between I-II metatarsal bones is 10-12 degrees, and the angle of deviation of the first finger is 15-20 degrees;at the second degree, these angles respectively increase to 15 and 30 degrees;at the third degree - up to 20 and 40 degrees, and at the IV degree - exceed 20 and 40 degrees.
Deforming arthrosis of the first stage of the foot joint radiographically characterized by a narrowing of the joint gap by less than 50 percent and marginal bony growths not exceeding 1 mm from the edge of the joint space. Arthrosis of stage II is characterized by a narrowing of the joint gap by more than 50 percent, marginal bone growths exceeding 1 mm from the edge of the joint gap, deformation and subchondral osteosclerosis of the articular ends of the articulating bones. With arthrosis of the III stage, the joint gap is not radiographically determined, there are pronounced marginal bone growths, gross deformity and subchondral osteosclerosis of the articular ends of the articulating bones.
Longitudinal flat feet of I or II degree, as well as transverse flat feet of the first degree without arthrosis in the joints of the middle foot, finger contractures and exostoses are not grounds for applying this article, they do not prevent the passage of military service, admission to military schools and schools.

Uncle Fedor

With the positive conclusion of the VVD

Igor Igorek Igor

can now take with anything.try to point out your sores and say that they cause you inconvenience.maybe it will carry.


category "B" is given in the case of flat feet of 2nd degree and arthrosis of the 2nd stage. Or without arthrosis, but with a flat-foot 3 degrees.
Art.68 schedules of diseases.

Cvetlan Igin

I have a son the same diagnosis as you have, took as a dear! Chased to swear and in the tail and in the mane, lay 5 days in the medical unit. After that again, they drove the leg, swollen, was taken to the hospital-7 days later, lying down, now it's easier to go to the guard, strong-
but do not drive. I went to the military registration and enlistment office, said about the reasons that the diagnosis does not allow wearing military-style shoes, asked why they did not write off-they are not supposed to be! So you will have to knead army boots with your diagnosis!

Sergey Guryanov

You do not have to crumple anything, if you act! If Flat-foot 2 degrees + arthrosis 2 degree. Everything is documented, makes a bunch of pictures! And put pressure on the military enlistment office. Do the same examination on the back! Make an MRI.Just so no one will put you a category B!
If you have just started, then prepare for a year of brainstorming.
If you really have problems, then you should often go to the doctor, what would be the so-called medical history in your card. This is a big plus. If nothing happened, but by law you are not fit, go to court.
