i always play some recreational badminton with my badminton kakis twice a week during this holiday. but one of them keep complaining that his wrist (he's a right-handed player) hurts whenever he hits the first few strokes... and that the pain persists for quite a while till about half an hour later... he did do some warm up but i suppose this problem has been long-standing... he did do some regular fist push-up to strengthen his wrist, though he also experienced pain when doing this workout. btw, he's very fit and has strong arms and wrist, so it's rather puzzling as to why such injury will occur in the first place. am rather concerned to the extent of his injury. as it does not surface after some pt of time, but it does happen whenever we start playing... is this injury serious and a cause for concern? and is there any other way to prevent it? consulting a doctor or physiotherapist right now will be rather expensive. anyone who encounter such problem before, pls gimme advice and help. thanks. i personally have no such problem.
