Thread: knee pain
10-28-2007, 09:34 AM #1
hey guys, I've been starting to experience pain in my right knee during training. It's been like that for the past few trainings and the pain gets worse every time.
It could be because I don't have big, strong legs and you all know that badminton stresses joints more than most sports. Which exercises would you recommend?

Have you tried a knee bandage as a support?

No I haven't tried it. I will get one before the next training on Tuesday.
Besides the bandage I'm thinking of something that will help my knee in form of training. I've been reading some articles on the internet and some people recommend cycling to strengthen the muscles surrounding the knees

You should see a specialist ASAP.

I agree with Pete,
I'm not a fan of the "if it hurts, wear a brace" approach...
I had the same problem you had, I was overstressing the patella Tendon because my leg muscle barely handled the load of my footwork.
Squats and 'wallsitting' (anything with my knees >90degrees) did the trick for me.
In the meantime, when it did hurt, I taped up my knees like a patella brace...

oh, and i was wondering for what kind of doctor this could stand

Master Jerby doesn't have cartilage issue but I do so I have to use a knee brace. And yes, I do quad and ham strengthening.

You can try looking for a physiotherapist.

oh darn, i think i'm gonna go get my knee checked TODAY. Thanks for all your advices people.
I thought perhaps I could just train my leg muscles, get some massage and that's it. Then again I was afraid I might really mess up my knee by working out my legs. But since some of you insist on visiting a specialist, I'm going to do that.

It is best to consult with medical sports expertice, when having knee-pain.. It is not always rest is the best/only way to cure it.. Often pain can be caused by imbalances of muscle strength and mobility.. varius strength training excercises and also stretching combined with light training, NSAIDs, glucos-amine etc may help to rehab the issues..

Rest & ice
There are quite a few different problems that are common for the knee. You are correct is saying that badminton stresses the joints, particularly the knees. This is especially true if you are playing on a hard, un-yielding surface or you are using footwear that does not provide suitable cushioning & support.
Almost all knee problems can be helped with rest & ice. Back off the badminton a bit to give your knee time to recover. Icing should be done shortly after exercise and again later in the day. Don't use the ice immediately prior to engaging in exercise.
