    You get to look into the long term. If you really want to know the exact problem with your knee, get a private MRI scan. I had mine at CAD 475, GST & PST included.

    MRI is the only way to go!!! I was lucky and the company I worked for at the time pushed it through the private medical insurance and the whole thing was done very quickly once the ball had started rolling.

    Only problem was that the doc's gave the all clear but I'm still hurting

    I have prescribed the B+C+G to over 150 individuals from the age of 24 to 80+. At least 85% success rate on degeneration or sports injury. My patients include my son's coach, my wife, Mom in law.....
    hey i went to the local pharmist and ask for that b+c+g combo and the dude there told me i shouldn't take B and he's not sure y B is part of the combo

    what does B do anyway?

    Unhappy man this sucks :<

    i would be fine with ma screwed up knee if i'm 80 years old( waiting to die already) but COME ON i'm ONLY 15!!! i still have a birght future out there in front of me. who knows maybe i was suppose to be a olmpic badminton finallist reppresenting Canada. But now i'm just a 15 year old boy with a 80 year old knee.

    instead of speeding towards my goal on being succesful in badminton, i am now limpping towards it...

    Default ?????

    by the way, for all those ppl out there who's knee is injured or has been injured, how bad was it? was ur knee injury from contacting something? or did it just start to hurt after u played?

    i'm really confused about mine my knee began to hurt when one day i played to hard and laded on my heals hard may times during the game. my knee did not come in contact with anything. the doc and everyone else said it's no big deal since there's no contact and the x-ray only showed there's a bit of swealling under my knee cap. however, i think it's getting worse and worse everyday. now with every step i take, it hurts.


    i'm planning on going to see some speacialist but i don't know what kind i should go to. should i go to the physical sports therepy or those chinese docs. and also there's the cost if they are sure they can fix it, i'll pay as much as the desire, but the thing is right now they all saw "well, it depends on how badly u are injured, some may take 3 days, some may take years." YEARS that's a lot of $$$$$.

    man i miss my old perfect knee

    How old are you and was this the first time you have such a serious injury?? You are very young and this sounds like your first one...
    The 'getting worse everyday' is probably because the swelling is starting to subside. I think you should leave it longer and give your knee some good rest. Maybe two or three weeks. Then see what happens.

    If you are only 15 years old and have a knee injury, I would be extra, extra careful in having it heal properly. Most people do not have knee injuries until they are in their late 20s-30s-40s.

    Good luck on a speedy recovery.

    Lightbulb good news at last

    hey guys my knee is finally feeling better now( after 3 and half week of no badminton) but it's all worth it!!
    for all u ppl out there whos is around 15 yrs old or 10-17, don't worry too much if u have a knee injury. i did some research and i found out that for ppl in this age goup, it's very common for them to suffer knee pain, espeacially when u are doing very active sports that require lots of knee support(badminton). therefore, don't worry too much, just take a rest and make sure u are getting enough nutrients; eat ur vegatables like ur mama told u and drink the milk too!!!

    also i found out that putting heating pad on ur knee or sleep in a tub of hot water to be very effective. it helps to relief the muscles around ur knee area and it feels goooooood too. so give it a try, at least there no "side effect". and it's also cheaper than going to therepy. unless ur a very environmetally friendly dude who really care about saving H2O, give the method a shot.
    anyways, my knee is not at it's best yet and i'm still gonna try to stay off the court( at least for x-mas) so that it'll complete heal.

    good luck to all u ppl out there who's still suffering through knee pain

    hope u'll all get better

    Disagree with your conclusion but agree (mostly) with the remedy.

    If you are 10-17 years old, you should not be having any types of pain. If you are, you are definitely overexerting yourself.

    But I do agree, rest is key component of recovery as you youngster recover so fast. As always, if you have problems, consult with a Specialist.

    I am not sure how muscular your legs are, but do work on your quads. Build them up as big as possible. Play less and train more .

    Sorry to revive a thread like this, but I've had tendinitis (Jumper's Knee) for well over a year now, but recently, the pain has just spiked. Glimpses of incredible pain arises a day after I play while I sit down or when I'm just standing. I've just purchased a knee brace and will use it everytime I play, but is it advisable to buy just one knee brace and continue playing or should I take a break from badminton until school starts?

    BTW: I've visited doctors and athletic medics before about this problem and none of them really helped my knee to recover, they just provide ways to dull or lessen the pain.

    try to apply ice (cold compress) after every game, and in most cases if you feel some "tenderness" in your knees. i guess your doctor has prescribed NSAID to ease any form of swelling and pain. rest will be an important aspect in your recovery. ask a physical therapist for some knee strenghtening exercises as well. just be patient and i'm sure you'll be back in no time. i hope this helps.

    After 2 years I for one wud like to know about how all the guys posted here are now faring. Hnvg recently gone down with knee pain I am going thru all these threads on this site in an attempt to find something useful and I did.
    1-stopped playing mostly (3 weeks now)
    2-wearing brace when i hv to walk or stand for over 1/2hr. relieves weight on the joint
    3-taking 2000mg Glucosamine/day
    4-physio recommended special exercises, diligently doing (BORING LOL)
    Found much less pain in past 2 days, can bend knee well but still apinful at the end.
    So much for now
