    You should see a sports medicine specialist right away. We have the same problem: right hander with left knee problem.

I've never had a sports related injury before, but my knee's been hurting for a month now. It hurts whenever I walk, and it hurts even more when I walk up and down the stairs.

    Well I guess I can understand if it was my right knees that's hurting, but my left knee? I'm so confused!

    I gotten alot of trouble with my knees. Dislocated my left knee playing singles a few years ago but was lucky not too much damage done. Unfortunately my right knee isn't so lucky

    I broke a bone in it when I was younger and my doc told me it would never recover fully so I have to wear a knee support when ever I play. I play about 12-15 hrs a week at the moment and my knee really feels the impact of that when i get up in the morning.

    My kness are shot a mix of badminton, rugby and skiing havent helped. Tackling a flight of stairs can be a right pain at times but I am far from giving up (except on the rugby). A knee brace helps as do anti inflammatories but I would guess pro's dont have the luxury of being able to pop pills when its bad due to anti doping rules.

    I know this doesn't sound very macho, but one session a week of Yoga coupled with a couple of 20 minute home yoga sessions helped sort out my knee problems to the point where I hardly felt anything (losing 2 stone probably helped as well!)

    If you can bring yourself to do it then I would thoroughly recommend a bit of yoga to soothe the joints!

    Here's a nice article about preventative measures to take to help protect your knees from injury.

    Anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen are not performance enhancing, and therefore they will never be on the anti-doping drug lists.

    The real danger with anti-inflammatories is that you can make the injury worse without realising it. Although these drugs are good for reducing inflammation, they do nothing for the underlying muscular causes of an injury. Therefore you can feel fine when actually you just injured yourself!

    Taking anti-inflammatories is safe when combined with rest. I would always recommend ibuprofen (400mg 3 times daily with meals) for 36 hours following a sporting injury, but this must be combined with rest for that period at least. Ice is good too.

    Don’t get me wrong I don’t pop pills all the time (well I do at the moment but that’s for a different issue) Its just when the pain becomes intolerable. I also wear a knee brace from time to time too.

    The major way of reducing the pressure on my knees is for me to loose weight 7-10KG's wouldn’t kill me but then one of the other joys in my life would be spoilt (I like my food).

    Orthokine concept
    Orthokine – autologous medicine for inflammationOrthokin is an autologous treatment concept used by doctors for the treatment of arthritis and spinal disorders. This concept is based on the finding that the cytokine Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is a key factor in the destruction of cartilage and the development of osteoarthritis (OA). Therefore, therapy of OA using an IL-1 blocker such as Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist (IL-1Ra) appears logical. IL-1Ra is antiinflammatory, relieves pain and is chondroprotective.
    In the case of OA and spinal disorders we see a (sometimes low grade) inflammation of the painful site. IL-1 (red spheres) is the most prominent active agent in this process. It damages and destroys cells by occupation of it’s specific receptors.

    IL-1Ra, present in Orthokine serum, (blue spheres) inhibits inflammation. If present in excess with respect to IL-1, it competitively occupies the receptors in the affected site. Thereby IL-1 is unable to attatch to the receptors and elicit it’s proinflammatory, destructive and painful effects. The tissue and the cells are thereby protected from further destruction.

    Interleukin-1-Receptor Antagonist (blue spheres) has occupied the receptors. IL-1 is kept away and the inflammation process is blocked.
    Procedure
    The Orthokine procedure includes withdrawing blood from the patient with the specialized Orthokine syringe. The white blood cells contained in this blood begin immediately to produce IL-1Ra and other antiinflammatory and regenerative proteins. The concentration of the lead substance IL-1Ra increases up to 140 fold compared to normal basal levels. Without any further additives, the Orthokine serum is extracted, filtered and filled into ampoules. The subsequent therapy includes about 6 injections (given once or twice weekly).

    Try taking some fish oil (omega-3 essential fatty acids). Look up their effects, it's a good natural way to affect your body's inflammatory responses.

    a will ago when i had ankle problems, my doctor told me i was flat footed and blabla long story short got orthodics and im not flat footed anymore, but at the doctors he told me that over-pronation(flat feet) can cause knee problems and back pains, and after badminton i always have sore knee and back, im thinking of trying to wrap my knee like Kwun said. but what started my knee problem i think was badminton+flat feet, which is also bad, and off topic lol

    Since November last year(2008), my right knee started to swell after 3 hours of badminton (once per week). This happened twice, the doc prescribed me Voltaren and I gave it a rest. This week I started to play again (since the pain and swelling dissapeared). Within 2 hours after playing the knee began to swell again. By Monday it was almost 2.5 times the original size. The pain was unbearable, I could not bear any weight on the knee. I visited the doc and he immediately took a syringe and drained the synovial fluid etc (severe inflammation). A MRI is scheduled for this Saturday. The doc suspect that part of the meniscus could have detached and begins to interfere with knee movement. Let's see the MRI results, I'm afraid that arthroscopy is not far away :-(. Till then guess I'll play badminton on WII :-)

    The MRI was done and the doctor has confirmed that the meniscus is torn. Arthroscopy is needed. This is going to be painful.; to stop playing badminton that is :-(.
