    My coach crushed his knee before... twice!! Due to a jump smash He had a knee reconstruction after the first one, after several years, he crushed it again after a jump smash... AND he's still playing badminton even when his wife told him to quit already!! Truly a fanatic hehehee He told me that if he crushes it again, then that'll be it for him.

    Yeah, I've torn my ACL & snapped a piece of Cartilage in my knee too.
    If you have a look at the players in my club you'll see a lot of them with Knee braces/supports.

    I've also had the mis-fortune of slapping a shuttle at the net into my friends eye.
    She couldn't see for ages & had to go see a specialist, luckily some vision has returned but it's still a bit blurry.

    The badminton trainer said that my injury was due to the fact that the muscles around my knee were not fully developed. Which was true, because during that time I didn't lift weights or anything to build them up, just badminton. After rehab I built them up and still continue to do so. And also warmup might have been a factor. Which is why now, before practice or tournament, I make sure to warm up properly.

    My current injury is the worst I've ever had, but only in the sense that I've never had this injury before so I don't know how long I need to rest it.
    Sprained ankles and aching back and tennis elbow I'm used to.

    Location: Elbow

    Symptoms: pain when fully extending arm, pain when attempting to fully flex arm
    slight pain when fully supinated (more pain if supinating whilst arm is extended, very little while flexed). The pain is all on the inside (medial) of the arm.

    I don't know if it's a ligament (possibly ulnar collateral ligament), or more likely (I guess) would be tendonitis.

    My left hand can touch my left shoulder with ease. I cannot get my right fingertips within 10cm of my right shoulder.

    Suspected cause: Overhead backhand clear. Supinating with arm extended too much.

    Worse injury is when you done something to the leg really.

    I damaged one of the lower disks on my spine due to playing badminton. Don't exactly know but it is believed that I was playing whilst my body was either not fully stretched, or over playing myself out.

    Whilst that happened, it affected my muscles on my left leg which I had discomfort when sitting and standing for too long. On top of that I couldn't touch my toes when bending down, feet together. As the injury progressed, my left side of my body from back down to the legs, the muscles started to contract, making my left leg slightly shorter than my right.

    Although my injury has been recovered, I have scarred the nerves in one of my lower discs and lost my strength on my left leg, which means, I still have trouble bending down feet together and sitting and standing duration, let alone playing too long a session, the left legs goes all jelly.

    I'm still playing badminton, however my strength of my smash is just not as powerful as it would be, and since I've been checking up with osteopaths, I do stretches frequently on my left side of the back and going to the gym or do anything in general in life that can naturally strengthen my left leg again. (I walk upstairs as much as I can and the London underground is my gym when it comes to that.)

    I think there was a similar thread a while back but anyways...

    Major personal injuries sustained while playing badminton in chronological order (that I can remember off-hand):

    1. Badly twisted right ankle. Took months to fully recover and it still seems to want to roll easier.

    2. Numerous cases of tennis elbow. Due to trying too hard instead of relaxing during strokes.

    3. Numerous hyper-extended elbow from trying to whip my backhand shots too hard.

    4. Strained neck muscles injury. Due to previous lower back injuries, landed from a jump and a jolt of pain went up my spine and into my neck. Put me out of badminton for a few weeks.

    5. Complete Achilles tendon sever. Put me off my feet for almost half a year. Rehab took another half year.

    6. Meniscus cartillage and MCL ligament tear in my left knee . This happened last year and I'm still recovering. This could prove to be my worst injury yet as it might not ever fully recover.

    I've sustained more major injuries playing badminton than I have any other sport I've competitively pursued including ice hockey, soccer, baseball, volleyball, and taekwondo! Considering the relatively short time I've played badminton, I have a horrible injury record. Would someone remind me why I should still play badminton... heheh

    Hey, that sounds EXACTLY like what I had earlier this year. It happened after about a week of tennis/badminton playing about 4-5 hours everyday. I finally decided to stop playing to let my elbow recover. It was fine after just over a week, and it's still fine now (2&1/2 months later)

    My elbow's not getting much better, I'm going to see a physio later today.

    It is also annoying because before this injury I had taken some time off to rest because I was getting pain under my shoulderblade. I rested and it went away. I started playing and I got a pain between my shoulder and neck. Rested again and it went away. Started playing again and get this pain in the elbow/arm.

    hmm... i remember getting symptoms like that awhile back when i played baddy about 3 hours a day 5 days straight for 3 months. i usually played it off and then at home it start hurting again. and it did go from the shoulder to the elbow. i switched to a 3u racket and found my pain lessened.

    my worst injury was a hip injury, right in between my pelvis and thigh white attempting to do a backflip into the bars in a playground. i wasn't able to sit or walk for about 2 days.

    Broke two knuckles in a boxing match with a bulletin board ... it was a good punch though

    Other than that, nothing serious ... a few overstrained joints and muscles here and there

    Physio doesn't think any of the tendons are inflamed. He thinks it is something in the elbow joint capsule itself. Prescription is Ibuprofen and rest.

    The worst injury I've ever had was was patellar tendonitis (or more correctly now called tendinosis or tendinopathy as it is not caused by inflammation) in my right knee. First felt the pain during a club night in October 2002 after heavy training throughout the summer. I wasn't unable to play (in fact was told to keep going), but I had to cut out almost all of the training, and I couldn't move around the court as well as before.

    Managed to play at very most 2-3 times a week when before the injury it would have been about 6 times. Finally hung up the rackets for the season at the beginning of April and didn't look at a racket until the end of July. To my horror when I started playing again it was still there!!! But it has gradually gone away, and I'm now pretty much free of it (touch wood!).

    Other than that I've torn ligaments in my left ankle 3 times and once in the right ankle, but they are OK now. On the whole I think I've been pretty lucky

    I sprained my left ankle really badly, after a jump smash and some quick thinking person put some ice on it for me. The pain went away so I thought it was a minor injury and carried on playing (I was young) - I could hardly walk for the next two weeks!

    I haven't gotten many injuries myself, but one of the worst and most unique injuries i've heard about is from a player from my old club. he plays professionally now and in the finals of one tournament at the end of the second game, he felt a lot of pain all of a sudden in his left foot (he's left handed). He still manages to finish the game but loses (but had won the first), and after it the coach takes a look at the foot. It turns out that the big callus on the bottom of his foot (as any hardcore badminton player has) was so thick and had gotten so damaged that it just completely cracked in two! There was blood and a rather large gash along the bottom side of his foot, but even still he was determined to finish the game and win it. So the coach bandaged up his foot and he went on to play and win the 3rd game! He did so in excruciating pain, and took a couple weeks afterwards to heal.

    It may not be the most serious injury of them, but it could compete for one of the most painful!

    just a couple of months ago, i was warming up with my friend when someone hit a shuttle onto our side of the court. the bird landed behind me and i didnt know. i stepped back and my ankle rolled on the cork. felt like my ankle and leg was at a 90 degree angle. i had to wear a cast for a few weeks and couldnt play much.
