Hi all, I'm gonna seek professional help with this one, but I just thought that maybe somebody here has experienced something similar or has expertise on this: During training yesterday I experienced pretty substantial pains in my right elbow (my racquet arm). Or, to be more precise, ON the "lump" of the elbow itself. I have ruled out tennis elbow for the following reasons: 1) I haven't had any problems before. This suggests a more acute injury. 2) Symptoms are not typical for tennis elbow. For instance, I can freely move my wrist without experiencing pains in the elbow. The pain occurs when I extend or contract the elbow, with resistance. For instance, push-ups are just impossible. As to badminton, I can play but it is hurts to perform good clears and full smashes, as those involve some elbow movement. I can do "wrist shots", such as flicks and drives without too much pain though. My theory is that it is due to an acute "over-extension" (don't know how else to describe it) of the elbow. Last time I played I did a really forceful smash but I slipped on the floor and got thrown off in the stroke phase. I ended up "throwing" my arm out really hard, and I suspect the elbow joint took quite a hit... (This is also the reason why you should NEVER smash with a fully extended arm. Not only does it reduce power, it can also damage your elbow joint.) Has anybody experienced something like this? If so, how did you treat it?
