    Yeah, but I guess it comes with personal fitness too, I can touch and hold my palms against the ground cold. But seriously 30 mins is intense. I mean before competitions I would stretch a max of 15mins. That includes like every muscle and tendon in the body from head to toe as well as body warm ups.

    I`m recovering from the pain now "AGAIN".
    *Take the pills(Ibuprofen 500mg two times a day for four to six weeks)and REST(No overhaed motions,absolutely. untill the pain is completely gone;took me a month)
    *Go see the physio and do the rotator cuff stregthening exercise.To consider yourself a new born baby don`t get back to the badminton courts after you`re cured.Give yourself six months or more to get back your strength.Give it a year if you want to do badminton at your seventies like many retired pros.
    I didn`t do the strengthening exercise for the first time,so I hurt myself again.I am not that dumb this time;I`ll rest for a year meanwhile doing strengthening exercise.That sounds sexy,doesn`t it.

    When your shoulder hurts go see a doctor
    When your shoulder is cured you prevent sports injury every time before you play badminton.

    I enjoy strengthening exercise very much especially by means of an elastic cord.I can`t really put any weight on my right hand now because the shoulder is so weak.I must be patient.I think three months later I can start working with five pound dumbbells with my right hand.Do dietary supplyments like creatine monohydrate and amino acids speed up the recovery process?Can anyone share experience,please.

    Although pain is common on the wrists and shoulders, this is often due to poor footwork Striking the shuttle when in an awkward, off-balance position strains the joints. Correct technique not only makes shots more effective, but also avoids injury.
    Wrong technique can also cause painful arc/rotator cuff or subacromial joint injuries.
    So, maybe you should look at both your footwork and hitting technique.

    I'm in a similar position. I took a break for 2 months or so. I usually play twice or three times a week. I get shoulder pains when doing a full smash. I only do half smashes now.

    I find that I have to warm up twice as long. The muscle/warming cream helps a little. I have been using the cream for about a week now.

    I can do backhand clears and under arm swings (forehand & backhand) no problems. Just not over the head smashes.

    Will see how it goes. If things get serious I may have to take a trip to the physio.

    Wow, how can you manage yourself from not playing THAT long? Did you do other sports that didn't require overhead motions? I may need to rest mine at least a month, but that's quite a big struggle for me who regularly play 2-3 times a week. I'll get my body and hands itchy for doing some great motions badminton offers. Care to share?

    Hi Rodreaz, mine's cracking too. Even when the pain has gone, the crack still come every now and then if I do some motions that involve the cuff. Anything can lead to this; mine was most probably insufficient warm up :p hitting not with the right overhead swing and right position may also impinge the cuff.

    I think it's still debatable and not yet up to a conclusive remark? I'm still taking the supplement and it does help although not by much. I know it helped (tho a bit) because I once stopped the consumption for a week or so and I did feel the difference although not to the extent that it bothered me.

    Holy &%$# my shoulder hurts when I do this!

    I'm having shoulder issues, too. I think it started when someone hit a drive shot low and to my forehand and I hit the shuttle when it was essentially behind me.

    :mad:

    nono u r wrong ,
    stretching is for everyone, irregardless of age.
    if a youngster do stretching regularly ,
    his badminton life will be longer and less prone to injury.
