    Default Painful Heel...

    Hi Badfanatics...

    I've been playing bad for almost 2 years now... It's just now lately that that I felt this soreness on the outer part of my right heel. My left heel is pretty much ok. I'm a lefty, by the way...

    Any thoughts on this....

    What kinda shoes do you wear when you're on the court? I used to have a bit of heel pain every now and then when I was wearing my old pair of $30 Adidas crap. Switching over to a pair of proper badminton shoes quickly eliminated the problem.

    I think this is called 'pinched heel'. If your shoes are rounded at the heel or have a thin sole you'll be more likely to get hurt.

    I tried using badminton shoes but still my heel hurts... Does it also have to do with the playing surface?I usually play on Taraflex courts. I've heard that there's a better one, it's from Victor.

    I was wondering about this...but would basketball shoes be the solution? They have cushioning designed to absorb impact on foot+heels inherent in Bball, and they have good traction too

    I don't think basketball shoes will work coz they are too heavy and would limit quick movements needed in badminton....

    I agree with you on that, but for the sake of personal health take the tradeoff...I want to be able to walk when I'm 90 years old.

    Regretted playing today. Since i can't find my badminton shoes , dont know what happened to them. Had to slip in and play with my old shoe , which is Airwalk. Had few intense game with some national junior players today. Had a bump on my heel during a lunge for the net. Now my heel is slightly swollen. Never play without your badminton shoe! , don't know what is going on my mind playing with AIRWALK on my feeT!

    Same here.

    I am thinking about if my landing technique (especially clear, round head stroke, etc) wrong or something.

    Exactly for the sake of health, u should stay away from basketball shoes!!!

    In an intensive rally, heavy and thick sole shoes could be very dangerous for ankle and knee. I kept telling ppl the sad story about this guy, who wear basketball shoes in baddy, and badly sprained his knee, when the thick sole caught between 2 pieces of wood (ok, crap HS gym). And he could not play for several months already.

    Default cusion

    One tip is to buy an extra gel-cusion to put between the insole and the actual shoe on the heel you having problem with. Thus building up a bit of extra cusioning at the heel (this is common othopedic with heel problems).

    Another more expensive option is to have cusom-made insole's unique for your feet (imprints).. This can be a really good thing for many athletes as it's always a bit different from person to person how the weight distribution on the foot is when, jumping, skipping, launching, landing etc.. this can also be a good thing to minimize stress on both knees, heels etc..

    Cheers,
