    Default Pain Under Knee Cap??

    So i played badminton about 4 weeks ago
    and there was "very minimal" pain under my Right knee cap
    It didnt hurt very much but i felt like if i kept jumping and running
    it would have gotten worse.
    So i took a 3 week break and played again.
    i could play but the pain on my right knee made me think twice
    before jumping and running.
    The next day it hurt whenever i was getting up from my bed.
    It doesn't hurt anymore after like the 3rd day.
    Has another experience this?
    Someone said its the patella tendon but i'm not sure if this is correct.
    Just wondering what i should do?
    Should i play for one for session and see how i go?
    Or should i take a break? if so how long should i take?

    "I went to doctor and took an xray she said there was
    nothing wrong with my knee bones?"

    Under the knee cap? That's a tough one. I've had similar pain but it's usually gone after a few minutes. I say it's best to first consult a healthcare professional then decide whether you want to play another session or not.

    Well it never hurts to go see a doctor but I can't say it's necessary for your case. It sounds like you just need some rest or something

    Could be due to a lot of reasons. In my case, the chiropractor said I overuse my legs and my knee cap is misaligned. I reduce my playing from 4 times to 2 times a week, use strap, warm up and stretch prior and after. that seems to help.

    There are a lot of information here and I find them really useful.

    used to experience it too. exactly just like yours. at first it seems like its alright continuing playing, afterall its just a small pain

    well, NO. its not alright. that small pain affect my game and reducing my reaction time by a big margin. i become afraid to do long lunge, run, and jump because those movement hurt! The result is predictable, opponent easily dominate and I keep feeding them many late, short return

    Usually i play 3 times a week. But finally I try to stop it for good. 2 weeks without badminton, then start over again only once a week. Result is good, no more pain. I can move vigorously without thinking i'll hurt my knee. I think i'll increase my play time slowly and safely until i can play 3 times a week without overstraining my knee again

    one is just tendon protection, the other seems to be more heavy duty, possible restricting knee cap lateral movement

    pcll99, I have tried a couple of the knee straps, I find the McDavid to be pretty good, it has "level" indications depending on the level of support you require.

    I find this knee strap slightly better than others especially the tubular, non-slip buttress applies constant compression at the patellar tendon. Good thing is that I can easily get it here or the states. http://www.mcdavidusa.com/sportmed/knee

    I use the 414 MCDAVID Level 2 Knee Strap / patella for my games. I have it on my right knee because that's the knee which takes most of the weight / force.

    For more heavy duty one, I use the Neo-G Open Knee Support. http://www.neo-g.co.uk/product/Stabi...n_Knee_Support. It has flexible metal spiral on the side inserts which gives you lots of flexibility and support. This one is costly but gives you the best support. The only thing I don't like is the color.. I wish they were black.

    i guess the simple answer is this: ask your physiotherapist which strap is best for your particular injury!!! Right?
