Thread: 'Injured' Knee
12-04-2012, 10:25 PM #1
I am a 15 year old who regularly plays badminton and goes to training every week. Recently I go for training 2 days in a row.. after a few times training like that I felt some discomfort in my knee, but I didn't really bothered it and I continued my trainings (then I feel some slight pain in my knee) Then one day when I was helping out my knee started to feel pain after standing for like 2 hours.. My dad then advises me to stop my training until my knee gets better. I think I must've overused my knee and cause an injury.. How long should I wait for it to heal? I really hate not exercising and (especially)
de-conditioning. What exercises can I do? And what activity should I avoid?
Please help me

Both is true then you have fluid build up.
Just do to a sports doctor and get the fluid out, the doc will inject some cortisteriod for the inflamation. Then take NSAID's medicine for 2 weeks and you will as good as new. In fact after 1 week you can play already. The bad news is this will probably cost you around RM 550.

I dont think it's swollen. It is quite minor actually, I can move my leg, but if I stand/walk too long then my knee will feel uncomfortable (pain) Thanks for your suggestion anyway

I had (may still have) an injury called Patella Tendonitis. It's a very common injury amongst badminton players and feels like a very tender injury just below the knee cap.
Best to have it checked out by a specialist but I personally found that anti-inflammatory creams and a PT strap helped a lot. But that's after a long period of resting too.

If you leave it and just take medicine, the swelling might take 1 month plus to go down. With this just a week. In fact I just had this done 2 weeks ago and I was playing 3 hours session after 1 week ...
Be careful NSAID (anti inflammatory meds) can trigger some nasty gastric problem.

this kind of knee pain at my age 22, i used to rest about 6 month... till now i always use knee support for both knee for whatever workout i do even jogging... i'm suggest always do footwork training or drill or weight to strengthten your leg muscles...

It could be acid crystals building inside for those who have played long. I drink alkaline water to get rid of it. Now, no more pain.

rogerv2 how did u injure your knee?

Sat I played 2 hours doubles. Sun 2 hours hard badminton training with lots of drop retrievals plus 1.5 hours singles after that. My knees swelled up and I could not bend the knees more than 90 degrees. The knee was progressive getting harder to bend for the past 3 weeks before that.
So now I always use 3 steps to reach the net so that it puts less stress on the knees. A bit slower but with some anticipation and fast movement , i can handle most drops in time.

Today I went to the doctor and it turns out that my footwork,exercising,walking,running is wrong.. And it made me bow-legged He teached me the right way, some exercise and did some treatment and I guess I'm alright now. But I really regret that I did those things wrong.. and now I'm a little bow-legged Thanks for advices and thank God that is isn't anything serious
