    Default I don't understand what is wrong....

    i play with my right hand but my left leg tends to get more injuries than my right. i'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with my footwork. anybody know what's wrong?

    welcome to Badminton Central
    please be more specific. as we won't be able to know especially just by reading in the forum.
    best i guess ask people around you to observe your footwork and give pointer to you.

    i think i've torn or overstretched some muscles in my legs after playing. my left knee suffers from chronic pain, it hurts when i shift my weight onto left leg sometimes.

    If you are in pain, you probably should stop and rest a bit. Then make sure you have knee and ankle support whenever you play.

    Having said that, I am in the same boat as you, where my left knee and ankle got injured a lot more often than my right. It is not just playing badminton, but also in basketball, soccer (or football), tennis, and even giving my son a bath I am no expert here, but I figured it must be my muscle strength and the way I run or something.

    I would say to be very careful and get all the support that you can get.

    thanks for the advice fan888. unfortunately, it's season right now and i shouldn't be missing practices (5 days a week) and we have 2 games a week with a mile run on the day in between them.

    You must not allow circumstances to interfere with taking rest. Your long term health is much more important than short term badminton. If your coach is worthy of the title, he will recognise the wisdom of taking time off to rest and investigate an injury.

    If not, fire your coach.

    See a doctor.

    Like Gollum said, long term health is much more important. I don't know how old you are, but there is certainly life-after-badminton No matter how serious you are, this is still a game. Take care!

    Indeed. Without your health, you can't play badminton and perform many other tasks. Never lose sight of the bigger picture.

    Short Term

    You put up with the pain and continue playing. You might have a good season. Depends on the injury. How long the season is. How mentally tough you are and how good you are.

    Long Term

    The injury gets worse. You injur your other leg because it is taking the strain from your injured leg. You have to take off a entire season instead of just a couple of weeks or month or two. Your injury impacts on other areas of your life like work and family etc.

    Seek a sports doctors advice.

    when i ran forward on the court, the sudden force and weight caused my left knee some pain. not sure how it happened, but shouldn't have ended with my left foot in front. also previous straining it during conditioning and practices. during a checkup one a chinese doctor, who found several thing that should be treated after checking pulse and by just looking, i was asked if i have any pain or problems with my knees when climbing stairs. another one said that my left foot being a bit crooked (which others have said was from a bunion on my big toe) might be because my knee is crooked too or slightly out of place. who knows, might just be growing pains but can never be too sure.
