Thread: Shoulder injury

Those phrases set alarm bells ringing for me! You are gambling with your future health if you continue to play through the pain.
Pain during exercise is a warning that the exercise is damaging you. You describe the pain as "tearing", which is very worrying indeed.
Pain is not just "in the mind". It is an indication of bodily damage (exceptions for neurological pain, which you don't have).
Please, stop playing at once and consult a doctor.

But I share your sentiment. I rather live with the injury than have my arm cut up.

hi, i knw i am posting quite a few months on from when this thread started, but i dont think it sounds as serious as u guys r making out.
it sound exactly lik a shoulder rotator cuff injury, u know u have for tendons holding ur arm into the ball and socket joint of your shoulder, the jarring motion of a smash or even a clear in badminton could tear or pull one of the tendons when executed poorly, or even just when the muscle is cold, or not warmed up properly.
your best bet is to go 2 the doctors and ask for ibruprofin, this is an anti inflammatory medicine, and helps with the pain in your shoulder, as the pain and tightness is caused by swelling in your tendons, u assume that the pain is coming from just under and inside your collar bone?and also do some aerobic work, this will aid bloodflow to the muscles and tendons and aid the healing progress.
there are also exercises you can do to spped upo this process but you can look them up on the internet yourself!
lastly i would suggest you go to a doctor and ask him refer you to a physio, i have the same thing, and i happens to me all the time, im an alrite player, so when i get injury its really depressing when you knw ul have to take at least 2 months out(yes that is the average period u need to recover from this injury) and u you ul have to work so hard agen to get my standard up to wot it can be. the [hysio can help you with the recovery process and mayb give you some extra tips on how to heal quicker, mayb diet, and also how to prevent injury from occuring agen!
so the lesson of this injury to to always warm up properly!!!!
i hope this helps guys!
ps.the actually scientific name of the muscle in that area also often damaged is supraspinatus, look into that could also be a similar thing affecting your shoulder!

how bout mine? around 7 months ago i played badminton for the first time after about 2 weeks of absence. bought new racket since i left mine back home and strung it at 23 lbs which was out of my league at that time (cuz my racket backhome only got 18 at best, it was all noodley)
played for a bit and then executed an exaggerated force cuz i was not used to the tension (so that i could send the shuttle far. it felt like hitting with a ping pong bat) and then my shoulder was injured
it's gone now but now my shoulder feels abit odd. when i put my arms downward at about 45 degree angle from my body and i move it backward, i heard *clack* sound (not loud but is audible). it sounds like.. my shoulder was dislocated or something. it's not that serious but i dunno what's the problem. i dont feel pain when i play badminton or when i execute any stroke, it's just that my shoulder feels odd..
what u guys think?

erm is it lik a click click sound?sound lik you didnt heal it properly and the cartilage is gone tough, so mayb you need to go to doctor to sort that out.

yaaaa, well it sounds more like clack instead of click.. well maybe click clack
seeing a doctor this friday, for my ankle too

Yeah i got that making sound thing as well. When i rotate my arem 360 degree i can feel that the shoulder joint make some sound like that. Hey what is worse consequence? ARM AMPUTATION?
03-24-2006, 11:14 AM #27
naw.. no amputation since we still can use it..
i just hope it's fixable..

ok so i met the sport doctor and he said as long as it doesn't hurt it's fine
then i was examined and he said that my right shoulder is weak and sent me to a therapist.
that's all about it, nothing serious

This kind of pain is common in Badminton.
I had the same pain either. I was tried to make a longer clear shot and powerfull smash with my new NS7000 with 24lbs BG68 string. I was hardly removed my right hand to open my clothes.
The massage theraphis help a little bit, but I tried not to play for two weeks.
When I back to court, I tried not to smash or to strain my shoulder muscle.
I tried to use more trick to win the game. I improved my footwork, so I can cover the court without using my power. After a while, the pain disapear and I have a better footwork, drop and net's play. My friend said, the way I move my hand to do the clear is not wright. I swung my arm, instead using my wrist snap more why my elbow is on the air.
The key is, warm up all your joints before you play is the most important to prevent the injures.

Sounds more like infraspinatus to me. In this condition the pain is actually caused by the effort required to slow the arm down after impact.
The message is clear though. See a physiotherapist or risk permanent injury.

The shoulder pain might caused by lack of strengh. You might overused your shoulder muscle strengh (in other word, you try to smash so hard that over the limit of your muscle strengh). Suggest solution, after recovery (Rest, Ice...) where the pain really gone, start doing some strectch and weight training.... try to smash 90 % of your strengh

Two days ago I got my AT 800 OF restrung done. At home, I was trying the racket (with some small swing) and suddenly there was one swing and I felt pain. It seems like because of that specific swing something happened in my arm. It wasn't even a fast smash swing. It was like a high serve swing.
So, I stopped trying it out and during any normal acrivities I don't feel any pain.
I went to play yesterday for badminton and I noticed when I try to smash/clear I feel the pain. The pain is not in the shoulder. It is inside my bicep (little above the Elbow joint and inside the inner arm). I don't know what should I do about it. It doesn't happen when I stretch my arm. It only happenes when my forearm and bicem are in V shape position and I twist my fore arm. If I move it slowly no problem. Even If i move it fast no problem. I feel pain only when I move it very fast, something like smash/clear.
What should I do?
- Take rest
- Go see a massage therapist
- Go see my family doctor
