Flat-footed 2nd degree army

Is the army taking a flat foot? All the answers to conscripts

You are conscript age and the question arises: are they taking to the army with a flatfoot?

To date, it is necessary to be guided by Regulation No. 123. It is better to look at the last edition of 25.02.2003.See the section on musculoskeletal diseases, where flat feet are described in detail in the article No. 68 of the table, which is called the "Schedule of Diseases".Having studied this document, you can independently determine whether an army with a flat-footed is taken.

It all depends on the degree of complexity of the disease indicated in the diagnosis. The degree of complexity of flatfoot is distributed according to the points: a, b, c, d.

If the diagnosis falls under the item "a"( a significant violation of functions with flat feet) - the draftee belongs to the category "D", according to article 68 he is considered not fit for service inarmy.

Point "b"( moderate disruption of functions with flat feet) - refers to the category "B", that is, the draftee is limited in scope( or not suitable in peacetime).He receives a military ticket and is credited to the reserve. Such a person is exempt from draft.

Item "B"( minor disruption of functions with flat feet) is also a category "B".

Point "g"( without disrupting functions, when there is objective data) - category "BZ" - is suitable, with the exception of some arms.

How are diagnoses distributed according to the provisions of Regulation No. 123?

a) - horse, varus, hollow, heel, equinovarus, flat-valgus deformed foot( one or both), formed as a result of injuries or diseases, and with which a person can not use military shoes;B) the third degree of flatfoot( longitudinal or transverse);

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

d) - 1 st or 2 nd degree of flatfoot( at the 1 st degree of deforming arthrosis).

How to determine the degree of flatfoot?

To determine the degrees of flatfoot, one must follow:

  • with the description of the radiograph in the standing position under load. Description does the radiologist. He must determine the angle of the longitudinal arch, its height;
  • by the angle of Belera, which determines the degree of deformation of the calcaneal brush;
  • by computed tomography in the coronary plane to assess the condition of the subtalar joint;
  • description of the parameters of angular deviations of the first metatarsal bone and the first finger.

Who will tell you if they take the army with a flat foot, determine the degree of flatfoot and make a diagnosis?

Only a doctor of the orthopedic surgeon's clinic can determine the degree of flatfoot. The diagnosis is made on the basis of radiographic shots, which the radiologist describes, the orthopedic surgeon on the basis of these descriptions makes a conclusion and establishes a diagnosis. The military commissioner has no right to make a diagnosis. It only determines the level of fitness for military service on the basis of a clearly established diagnosis by a doctor at a polyclinic.

What if. .. Or FAQ

  • There is a description of the pictures, there is no diagnosis, and the military commissar says: "Goden"?

A doctor is obliged to write a diagnosis if he refuses, then this behavior is regarded as a refusal to provide medical care, which is fraught with penalties for the doctor, up to and including dismissal.

  • The doctor of the local polyclinic asked whether he was taken to the army with a flat foot, and sent you to the military enlistment office.

To complain to the superior authorities( from the head of the polyclinic to the city administration and above) it is desirable in writing with mandatory registration of letters.

  • The doctor "understates" the degree of complexity of flat feet.

This can be determined by comparing the parameters described in the X-ray, with explanations in the Regulations on Military Medical Examination. It is necessary to pass the examination in another clinic. Based on the available facts, write complaints. If there is no result, sue. If you are right and the disease does exist, the doctor is recognized incompetent, and your rights will be restored.

  • What flat foot is not taken into the army?

Sidgnozami, falling under the items: a, b, c.

Can I run with flatfoot?

Basically, doctors agree that running with flat feet is contraindicated. You can, and even need to load the foot, but the load must be correct. A complex of physiotherapy exercises developed by an orthopedist for your degree of flatfoot, deformities of the foot and complications is useful.

You can walk, but you need an orthopedic insole made on an individual order.


Flat feet: symptoms and treatment, longitudinal, transverse 1, 2, 3 degrees, orthopedic insole with flat feet |Orthopedics

Flattening is the deformation of the foot and its arch. In the overwhelming majority of cases, this acquired disease, which develops due to prolonged "standing" work, when wearing shoes with heels or with a narrow toe, when weight is set, when the bones and muscles of the foot begin to "press" an increasing number of kilograms. Among women, flat feet are found 3 times more often than men. The photos below show how the foot is deformed. Flattening leads to the development of other diseases, so it is important to conduct timely prevention and follow all the recommendations of the doctor if you are diagnosed with this.

Photographs and types of flatfoot

If the flat feet are clearly expressed, it is noticeable even visually when examining the foot.

Doctors speak of such symptoms of flatfoot:

  • pain in the foot;
  • frequent fits of the fingers and muscles of the foot;
  • shoes wear out more strongly from the inside;
  • the foot in the area of ​​the fingers becomes wider, so you have to change your shoes;
  • "buzz" in the legs after a long walk.

Doctors orthopedists distinguish the following types of foot deformities:

  • Rickets flat feet, arises from lack of vitamin D,
  • is traumatic, appears as a consequence of fractures of the ankles, foot bones and others,
  • paralytic - the result of paralysis of limbs and foot muscles;
  • longitudinal( the inner arch of the foot changes);
  • transverse( deformed toenails).

Longitudinal flatfoot

Normally the foot touches the floor with the calcaneus, thumb and little finger, therefore on its inner side there must be a pronounced bend - the arch of the foot. The smaller the distance between the inner side of the foot and the floor, the greater the degree of longitudinal flat foot. Podologies( a physician dealing with foot problems and flatfoot) distinguish three degrees:

  1. there are no obvious visual signs of changes in the foot, but with prolonged walking there is fatigue and pain in the foot, swelling is possible;
  2. disappears the inner arch of the foot, while walking the pain extends to the ankles and lower legs;
  3. deformation of the foot is clearly pronounced, therefore the position of the bones changes in the shin and knee, so there are pains in the shins, knees, lower back, there is a headache. Normal shoes with this degree of longitudinal flat feet is not suitable.

Transverse Plain Feet - Symptoms and Treatment

This type of flatfoot is characterized by a decrease in the length of the foot due to the discrepancy of the foot bones, as a result of which it is deflected towards the thumb and the medium is significantly deformed. Often on the thumb appears "lump" - a painful thickening.

Degrees of flatfoot

Like longitudinal, transverse flat feet have several degrees. They differ in the level of curvature of the thumb and the appearance of corns.

Flatness of 1st degree

A longitudinal flatfoot of 1 degree is diagnosed if the first finger is deflected by an angle of less than 20 degrees. In this case fatigue occurs with prolonged walking or stress. Under 2-4 fingers appear seals - natoptyshi.

Flattening of 2nd degree

The second degree of transverse flatfoot is called moderate and is characterized by a deviation of the finger by 20-35 degrees. Usually, pain and burning in the foot area become frequent, especially for a long time to walk in shoes. The nattoids occupy a large surface.

Flattened 3rd degree

The first toe of the foot deviates by 35-50 degrees, which looks like a dislocation. The pain is permanent, on the foot of the foot, more and more. Often the third degree is accompanied by the development of bursitis - inflammation of the periarticular bag.

If the finger deviates more than 50 degrees, diagnose a 4 degree.

To determine flat feet in a domestic environment, you can apply a solution of the colorant to the feet, and then stand on sheets of blank paper the way you normally stand. If the inner bend is poorly expressed or the imprint differs from those listed below, it is worthwhile to see a doctor. This method of diagnosis is called planktography. The doctor will measure the angle between the two lines, one of which is drawn from the middle of the heel to the thumb, and the second from the same point to the second interdigital space. The final diagnosis is made based on X-ray images of the foot, performed in different positions.

In addition to longitudinal and transverse, there is a mixed flat foot, combining the characteristics of the first two.

Is the army taking a flat foot?

This question excites both conscripts who suffer from this ailment and their parents. Indeed, at 3-4 degrees of flatfoot walking causes painful sensations, and ordinary shoes are not suitable for the patient.

So, if the draftee is diagnosed with flat feet of 1 or 2 degrees, he is subject to service in the ranks of the armed forces. If it is longitudinal flatfoot 3 or transverse 3-4 grades( there is pain syndrome, finger contracture, arthrosis of joints and other serious deviations from the norm), then the boy or man is released from the call. However, he is given a military ticket and he is credited to the reserve with the record "limited to go."

With a flat-footed second degree, the recruit is given a B-3 fitness category, usually a non-combat service: a cook, a janitor, a builder.

Flattening in children treatment of

Infants have imaginary flat feet due to subcutaneous fat in the foot. When the baby begins to walk, the muscles develop and the foot eventually assumes the correct outlines. Only by the age of three does the formation of the foot end. It is very important that the baby at the time wear the right shoes: with a rounded toe, firm back, on the heel to 1cm, inside is desirable insole insoles, which helps to form the arch of the foot. Categorically, you can not walk barefoot on a firm, level surface.

If the developmental defects of the foot are observed during the intrauterine development, the baby may have a congenital flat foot.

Children can also develop acquired flat feet. His reasons:


Liberation from the army on a flat foot - Armydocs

Each of us ever heard the phrase "Do not take flat foot with the army".Of course, this is so, but only partly. Very often, young people do not know if a draftee can be taken with a diagnosis of flat feet: To clarify the situation with a flatfoot and an army, we decided to systematize all the information on this topic so that you can clearly understand what you can expect by having the diagnosis "Flat foot".

Diagnosis of

In order to determine the presence of flat feet in the draftee, as well as to determine its type and degree, X-ray examination is performed. Snapshots of the feet are performed in two projections: longitudinal and transverse, in both cases with full load( standing).

Longitudinal flatfoot

Longitudinal flat foot is the deformation of the foot, in which the foot touches the floor with the greater part of the sole, and the length of the foot increases( i.e., the lowering of the arch is diagnosed).

Degrees of longitudinal flatfoot Longitudinal flat feet are regulated by art.68 Timetables. The decisive importance for awarding this or that category of validity to military service has the corners of the inner arch and its height.

The corners are considered normal angles of 125 ° -130 °, the height of the arch is 39 mm.

Longitudinal platypodia of 1st degree: is exhibited by the expiration category A corner of the longitudinal inner arch: from 131 ° to 140 ° height of the arch: from 35 mm.up to 25 mm.

Longitudinal flat-foot 2 degrees: is exhibited by the expiration category A corner of the longitudinal inner arch: from 141 ° to 155 ° height of the arch: from 24 mm.up to 17 mm.

Longitudinal flatfoot of the 3rd degree: is exposed to the expiration category Into the corner of the longitudinal inner arch: from 155 ° and more the height of the arch: up to 17 mm.

Thus, only the longitudinal flatfoot of the 3rd degree gives exemption from service in the army.

Transverse platypodia

Transverse flatfoot is a deformity of the foot in which the lateral arch of the foot flattenens, its front section rests on the heads of all five metatarsal bones, the length of the feet decreases due to the fan-shaped divergence of the metatarsal bones, the deviation of the first finger outward and the hammer-shaped deformation of the middle finger

Degrees of transverse flatfoot Longitudinal flat feet are regulated by art.68 Timetables. The decisive importance for awarding this or that category of fitness to military service is the angles between the psychedelic bones and the angle of deviation of the first finger.

Transverse flatfoot of the 1st degree: is exhibited the category of validity A angle between 1-2 metatarsal bones: from 10 ° to 12 °, angle of deviation of the first finger: from 15 ° to 20 °;

Transverse flatfoot 2 degrees: expands the shelf life category B-3 angle between 1-2 metatarsal bones: from 12 ° to 15 °, angle of deviation of the first finger: from 20 ° to 30 °;

Transverse flatfoot of the 3rd degree: is exposed to the expiration category In the angle between 1-2 metatarsal bones: from 15 ° to 20 °, angle of deviation of the first finger: from 30 ° to 40 °;

Transverse platypodia 4 degrees: Category of life In the angle between 1-2 metatarsal bones: from 20 °, angle of deviation of the first finger: from 40 °;

Thus, only transverse flat feet of 3rd and 4th degree gives exemption from service in the army.

Practical advice for

If you are going to receive exemption from the call for the diagnosis "Flat foot", then you need to remember a few very important points:

  • Always come to the medical board with medical documents prepared in advance, which confirm your disease( flat feet of 3rd degree).Without documents, the military registration and enlistment office does not recognize that you have a flat foot or put up a 1 or 2 degree, with which you can serve.
  • Medical documents must be issued by the state medical institution. Conclusions of private medical centers are not considered seriously by the military commissariat.
  • Doctors in the military registration and enlistment office can ask you to take off your shoes and demonstrate a flat foot. In doing so, they will tell you to lean against the wall, so that the load on the feet disappears and visually flat feet are not observed. Do not succumb to such tricks and emphasize the availability of your documents proving the diagnosis.

The basis for exemption from military service is a longitudinal or transverse flatfoot of the 2nd degree with arthrosis of the talon-navicular joint of the 2nd stage or a flatfoot of the 3rd degree.
Exemption from military service is the basis for exemption from civil service

Tenan Misxa

Right now with 2 for a long time already. With 4, no, but with 3 should not if put kat. B try in court to challenge the decision of the Draft Commission, only take a copy of the decision in the military enlistment office and take it to the court to apply.
Exemption from military service is the basis for exemption from civil service
Arkady does not need troops here with the state.service is confusing in democratic countries so it is not done is different types of service.

Natalia Zaitseva

No, with a flat-foot 3 degree, if it is confirmed by X-ray images, they are not called into the army. Category B, limited fit.

Ivan Karpov

With probability of 99 percent there will be a category of validity "B" and a military ticket.

Are two degrees of both feet taken into the army with longitudinal flat feet?

Ivanov Ivanov

during the war


remember!in the army do not take a longitudinal flat-footed third degree!in all other cases take!
Longitudinal flatfoot and hammer-like deformity of 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 to 130 degrees, the height of the arch is 39 mm. Flattening of the 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 the second 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.
According to your description of the pictures, even independently of what( i.e., the first and second versions), a flat-foot II degree is determined. However, the description of the image is not complete. But if the doctor radiologist will be determined arthrosis of the II stage of the joints of the middle foot, then the category of validity of you to military service under Art.68, item "c" will be "B" and the decision of the draft commission will be recognized as limited to military service. After checking the documents and approving this decision, the decision of the regional conscription commission will give you a military ticket. If there is no arthrosis, then the category of fitness for military service will be "B-3" and you will be called.
While one advice is to conduct a qualitative X-ray examination of the feet and their full description of the photographs taken.
Additionally carry out the same examination and description of the spine and hip joints.
