Lower leg pain (lower tibia/shin)
I play 2 to 3 times per week. (2 to 3 hours per session). Sessions are usually 1 to 2 days apart (no consecutive day sessions.
I've been experiencing slight pain on my lower leg.
I feel a slight dull/soreness throughout my calf area. This could be due to overuse and I'm not overly troubled by this pain. This usually goes away after a day's rest.
Additionally, I tend to feel a different kind of pain on my "lower tibia/shin" area. (lower 1/2 area of the shin).
I feel a sharp pain whenever I apply a slight pressure (via pressing a finger).
Any of you have the same symptoms? How'd you treat it?

do you get this pain when playing, running etc?

no pain during the game itself.
pain is most pronounced a day after a session.

sounds like mild case of shin splints
from repetitive impact of your feet on hard surface
wear thicker socks or shoes with better impact absorption
if you're playing on hard floors like cement or unsuspended wood floors, then you've got to stop and switch to rubber mats or suspended wood floor

Thanks a lot. I did a quick check on the symptoms of the "shin splints syndrome". They're basically what I'm experiencing!
I'm supposedly using shoes with good impact absorption (YY SHB-102's). I also use thick socks (just 1 layer though).
Badminton courts here are quite limited. Only hardwood floors are available.
I'll have to investigate further to find a remedy. I plan to do strengthening exercises and loose a couple of pounds (easier said than done, though).
