    Thumbs down stress fractures

    My ex girlfriend and still mixed doubles partner today was given a consultation on her acute pain in her legs, she was right medial and tibia stress fractures and muscle syndrome.

    She could be put for 6-20 weeks which is a long time to train or play. Specialy when we have a tournament in six weeks.

    She has to have a bone scan and that will determine the extent of the injury and grade and how long she is out for.

    anyone else had the same injury?

    Hello fellow Sydneysider. I had the same injury this January. I actively rested for 6 weeks. All I did through exercise was swimming almost everyday and cycling once a week. I made sure my upper body was still fit to play badminton by shadowing hitting actions with a squash racket...strengthened my wrist a bit too And I did boring old sit ups too. After that 6 week period, I managed to run without pain.

    Dear me...I thought I was the only one suffering from this~! I banged my shins on a bench accidentally last August and a few times after and now I am still fretting on the pain~! I suspect its a stress fracture or a bone bruise. There's a lump on both shins and its difficult to play baddy, movements became slow and jumping is a no no (I realised after doing double skips). I am yet to see a doctor as I take pain killers or play a slower game (NHS doesn't help!). The pain encourages reluctance to move in court and its quite discouraging spiritually. I have been resting for 2-3 weeks now, the swell's gone down and I have no problem walking around which used to be quite a chore. I will be seeing a doctor when I return to Malaysia this June. Well, do take care everyone~!

    ZOMG alvinlai? What are you doing? You want to be a druggie? Man, that's not cool, why not actually see a doctor now before you screw it up unintentionally or intentionally.

    Hahaha, nice one there Fend. I don't usually take pain killers except when I'm playing an important competition or some sort. Make that less than 10 in a year~! The NHS here really screw up big time. I rather rest now and visit a doctor back home. Its out of season now and I'm only playing socially, basic upper body movements and no intense lower body action. I drink lotsa milk now and that seems to help too~ and cut down on soft drinks~!
