Back Pain When Paying
I am a reasonably fit 15 year old male, however I seem to have this occurring problem when playing badminton.
Occasionally, usually after a bout of heavy smashing, I will notice a pain in my back. It is not usually very serious and it heals in a day or two but it can be quite distracting while I am playing. It is a problem I have had for quite some time now.
I wonder if the kind members of BC could enlighten me to what is causing the problem.

Speak to a doctor and talk to a qualified coach. Also, everyone has pain when paying.

Are you bending over while or after smashing?
Try keeping your chest up and back straight.

your back could be too tight so when you finish the smash, you could be pulling on it too much or your back isn't strong enough so when you are smashing hard, your back can't cope.
Take heed of the warning signs it's giving you. For the next month, do not smash hard!! Do back stretches and strengthen your core doing yoga or planks etc. Go on to youtube to get lots of videos on this.
And then see how it goes after a month. But if you keep pushing it now without doing anything, your back will go on you very badly and your badminton game could be over for good!! Be very cautious.
Its also very important that with every exercise you do, it feels good! When you get pain with anything, especially sharp pain, STOP!

Warm up. Stretch. Cool down.

Since hitting middle age, I find that I can get back pain after (not during) playing badminton. I make sure I sit properly after a game and also stretch my back by putting a cushion under my back for a short period when I go to bed - that seems to work

should u rotate your back when you smash?

strengthen your core and it should ease the stress on your back over time.
planks and side planks will help

Welcome to the league. Happens to everyone who have intense games.
Part of enjoying a tough game.
Just rest easy.

Me too, everytime when I reach for my wallet in my pants just before I buy a racket, I have back pains.
But if the sales clerk told me you can have this racket for free, suddenly my back doesn't hurt much lol..
In all seriousness, if your back hurts when smashing, when did you start having the pain?
If you you had the pain since you started to play, then it might be a deeper issue, consult a doctor. If you recently having pain after a tough session, then rest a bit and do not play badminton for a while, and see if it gets better as you might have pull a muscle or hurt your back.. Also make sure you do stretching excercises before playing.
If after rest and still does not heal, consult a doctor
I have back pains after a session that involves too much back hand clears in the past. Then after getting trained for proper technique, most of my pains are gone. Technique is really important when preventing injuries expecially when playing a repetitive motion racket sport like badminton

I suggest you do more back stretches like childs pose, sideways bend and especially upward dog. Type these into youtube.
Also there seems to be a problem with your core muscles getting tired and hence weak near the end of the session which could be putting your posture out therefore giving you pain. This is why sitting with good posture fixes that. Start doing planks and other core work to strengthen the back and abdominals. It is important that all exercises, whether stretches or strengthening all feel GOOD. Any pain, stop immediately and avoid the exercise for 4/5 days and try it again.
Stretches should be done every day twice. Strengthening should be done 3 times a week with rest day inbetween to help with recovery.

lol... I like the pocket thingy..
Yes, age plays a factor. Happens even when I was coaching and picking up shuttles. Just use a cheap back massager after the game to relax. Only about $80sgd.
I also torture my opponents by punching to their backhand regularly. Part of a strategy.
The strengthening tips above sure helps. If you can do it regularly.
