I have an injury, what should I do ?
Lower Back pain, worsening everytime I play badminton. This pain has been getting worse every week, for the past 5 weeks or so.
According to a physiotherapist at my school, I should take a break and not play badminton for a few weeks until it heals. My hardout friend(who reads all my comments here at BC ), also adviced me yesterday not to risk my back because he knows someone who had to quit badminton for a year because of a back injury.
I dont mind not going to clubs and the social games, but there is an 'international coaching clinic' and a 'fun-tournament' happening this Saturday. The coach, who will only be in NewZealand for a week or so is the head coach of the badminton institute at Singapore Sports School, who had also coached Kendrick Lee and Ronald Susilo. He had also played for Indonesia in the Thomas Cup a several times. His name is Basri Yusuf.
Now here's my question. Should I risk my back for the 'once in a lifetime opportunity', or should I just watch my friends and others get coached ?
Pretty hard decision for me here..

Avoid the fun tournament at all costs.
You decide if you can go to the coaching clinic but do avoid the heavy physical training. Try to pick up more on individual techniques.

That coach is good.
He is, um, an old hand
You will find it worth your while to be there, even if you don't take part in the coaching sessions
PS: Let us know if his son too takes part.
He is quite a good player.

In this case, I think I'll also not take part in the pre-season training next week either and wait for my back to heal.
Oh, coach Basri Yusuf is comming over here together with another person called Ahmad Bhakar, but I believe that his son is not comming.

I have almost the same issue. There is a company that sell herbal hot & cold therapy pack. http://www.naturecreation.com
I nurture my pains by using its Herb Pack. It helps to reduce the tension on my muscles. Maybe you may try it.

one of my relatives had chronic back problems as well.
he was introduced to a back stretcher which did him wonders, i've got one as well though my back is still fine.
he uses it 10 mins a day, every day, and now he's back to normal, it's quite amazing actually.
it's similar to this, although slightly different but i believe the concepts are the same ...

I'm stiff suffering from this back issue.. I often put ice or frozen peas on my back, and sometimes tigerbalm to cool it down to stop it inflaming..
But the thing which works the best for me right now is to stop playing badminton..
edit: wow.. i have 1000posts already
And here's some pictures from the coaching session..

After a while of rest It may be a good idea to do some lower back exercises. Just make sure you start gentle. I'm sure your physio can recommend some good exercises.

Yep.. I've been doing the 'ab-excercises' everyday as instructed by the physiotherapist. It's supposed to strengthen the 'inner-muscles' or the 'core muscles', which is connected to the lower-back. It's not tiring, but it's really hard to do everything at once. It's getting better now, thanks to the excercises, massages and my improving footwork.
