MIlitary law is not on your side here. That is, the law allows the military to keep you deployed, despite the pain you are experiencing.
That said, if the PT does not work, and you still feel your commander is not treating you fairly? You do have one more course of action you can use.
It is called Article 138 UCMJ.
Article 138 is one of the most powerful rights under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), but it is one of the rights least known and least used by military personnel. Under Article 138 of the UCMJ, "any member of the armed forces
who believes himself (or herself) wronged by his (or her) commanding officer
" may request redress. If such redress is refused, a complaint may be made and a superior officer
must "examine into the complaint."
Article 138 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) gives every member of the Armed Forces the right to complain that he or she was wronged by his or her commanding officer.
The process is simple...you put your complaint in writing, make sure you mention Art 138 UCMJ, and hand to any commissioned officer
. They will forward the complaint to the General officer in your chain of command who will investigate.
Now...they General is not required to grant your request.
But they are required to investigate your complaint. And if they find you have been treated unfairly, they will take action.
So if the PT does not work and your battalion commander
refuses to help you, I would consider filing a Art 138 Complaint.
Please let me know if you have more questions...happy to assist if I can
