A question about medical disqualification..
First of all, I'd like to thank everyone ahead of time for there responses. Im new to the site, so please bare with me if I make a mistake. I have a question about the medical disqualification concerning the back. It reads:
"A compression fracture, involving less than 25% of a single vertebra is not disqualifying if the injury occoured more than 1 year before examination and the applicant is asymptomatic"
I'm wondering if this is refering to only being allowed to have 1 vertebra with less than 25% of a compression, or multiple with a max 25% of a vertebra being damaged.
I ask because 4 months ago I was in a car crash and have 4 compression fractures in my lower back. All have healed and the doctor said I would be able to function just as I did before. I am still wanting to enlist and fight for my country. Any input would be appreciated.
