PES CAVUS DEFORMITY

Posted by Wildfire on 11/25/04 at 19:18 (164717)

Would three years serving in Army infantry be a cause of Pes Cavous to progress faster than none stress related occupation?

Wildfire:
People with pes cavus often have poor shock aborbtion characteristics. Being in the infantry or any job in which you are on hard surfaces for long hours can be tough on your feet. A custom orthotic may be helpful.

What I am mainly attempting to learn is if abuse could make the pes cavous progress more rapidly than should another profession been selected? If the answer is yes or maybe, are you aware of any medical findings to support this?
