Other than those rare happenings, I am currently having a very sore pain in my lower-back, because of all the lunging and all that I have to do during my badminton training. I've had this pain for three weeks already.

-You have injured your ankle and it's so painful you cannot put your weight on it 24hrs later.
-Your pain is not related to an injury and it lasts for more than 4 days.
-See your doctor immediately following an injury if, in addition to pain, you experience swelling, bruising, or fever, or if the joint feels loose.
Otherwise, you can try to ease your pain by:
-Apply some RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) as the first line of defense for all ankle injuries.
-Treat your ankle like a headache. Take a pain-killer like aspirin, ibuprofen, or acetaminophen.
-If it is a strained Achilles tendon insert a pad or lift (about half an inch)
in the heel of your shoes.
Also try to prevent problems with the right shoes:
-Wear the proper shoe. Don't use basketball or volleyball or running shoes for badminton. Use only shoes made for badminton.
-Install an arch support if the one that comes with your shoe is not adequate.
-Cushion the blow by using cushioned innersoles to absorb much of the impact of walking on hard surfaces, if you are on your feet all day.
-Retire your old shoes. Most shoes only have a life of 6 to 8 months of reliable support.

Injuries common to badminton include:
-Knees, especially the knee on the racquet-hand side which is susceptible to great stresses, both overload and tracking.
-Pain on wrist and shoulder, often due to faulty technique or poor footwork..
-A/C joint injury and overhead shots could cause condition to flare up, so practise with below-shoulder shots/strokes.
-Painful arc/rotator cuff or subacromial joint injuries.
-Tennis elbow, due to incorrect grip, poor technique particularly in the smash.
-Lower back, hamstring and Achilles tendon problems.
-A pull-off fracture of the thigh produced by repeated lunging, which loads the quads.
-Impingement injuries of the ankle.
-Get hit by partner

when i started playing badminton again few years back, i got back ache. quite bad due to the fact i have not moved that much and that aggresively for so long. rest for nearly a month. the pain gone and the badminton is enjoyable again.
then the knee on the non racket side. i used a support for the jumper knee condition and it is ok. no pain just sore. then the knee on the racket side. now use support for both knees. all ok now. just sometimes there's like a weakness on the area on top of the knee itself that when i go down some stairs, the right leg kinda buckled. but not often.
then i got the plantar fasciitis. which i treated with stretching methods found on the MAYO website and adding heel cup to my shoes. i really need a shoe with better cushion. mizuno rocks but they lack cushioning. i need to find a place to buy better insoles that provides cushioning to complement the excellent grip of the shoes. or i have to buy yonex power cushion shoes. hahahaha.
then i tried taneepak suggestion of high tension stringing. the stringing is good and the feeling of the racket is good too but alas my arm is not ready for that kind of tension. sad really. now i have a, not pain but like tired feeling, in my forearm and wrist area, tennis elbow and soreness around the shoulder. i guess that would be the rotator cuff. it is painful only when i raise my hand up. i think it is aggrevated by the fact that i slouch in front of the computer all day long and i usually sleep on my side on a bed that is not too supportive. so both sides of my shoulder feels the tightness but only the racket side feel the pain when i raise my hand. but the pain is really really minimal. i treat it with RICE and alternate that with heat rub or hot pack to get the blood going. now i am playing with a racket that is strung at 23/25lbs. at least until my shoulder can handle higher tension. i miss the awesomeness of high tension.
other than that, there's the usual sores all over the body but they are gone after one day rest. thank goodness i play on alternate days. my body always have a chance to recuperate in between baddy sessions.
