I had a similar problem before.. Do you play tennis or other sports besides badminton? Sometimes it occurs because of that.. I did rest too and it cured but depending on how bad the injury is, it may take even weeks. Mine was close to 2 weeks.. After 2 weeks and if it still hurts, do see a sports doctor.. he would know what to do best..

I had the same problem recently when I started playing again. My hand cannot stop trembling after playing. Very painful too.
An elbow guard will help. I continously use it for 2 weeks and the pain goes away. After the elbow trouble came the rotator cuff and recovered after 1.5 month. My tip is to regularly exercise the arm. Pumping is very good.

It's it tennis elbow
Do you think you have tennis elbow? You can look up the definition at this forum or google. I got tennis elbow for the last 4 months, I rested for 3 months. But as soon as I start to play again, the tennis elbow came right back.
I just did acupuncture on Saturday and so far most of the pain are gone. I am going let it rest and will be playing this Tuesday. I heard acupuncture can really help tennis elbow. I am keeping my finger cross.

Hey guys, thanks alot for your responses. i really appreciate it, im resting now, my coach said need to stop playing for 2 weeks,then visit physio... Slam_w2k we think im suffering tennis elbow, how painful was yours? i checked out the symptoms of tennis elbow, i have some of those but not all... did you use the elbow support when you get back? how come you had to stay away for 3months? was it very painful? mine is not painful at all when im doing nothing at all or if im not playing. Pain occurs when i hit smash and some shots and when i lift some heavy items. i´ve been resting now for 2 days and doing cold compress, it seems working, im checking the level of pain everyday. it kinda lessen, so im very hopeful and optimistic i can go back in 3-4weeks. finger cross as well.hehehe. thanks for sharing

I had tennis elbow
I had tennis elbow before. I visited a physiatrist and she gave me Vigel cream to use every morning and every night. She also made me attend a physical therapy rehab 6 times for 2 weeks. It's gone already.
My condition was the same as yours. I only felt pain when using a certain grip or lifting heavy objects. The pain was tolerable, but I was advised to have it treated before it got worse. Rest is also important. The doctor also made me wear an elbow support.
I hope you get better soon.

You may want to check your overhead shot technique and that you are using the correct grip. Try to have a relaxed grip in preparation to hit and only squeeze on contact with shuttle. You are probably holding the racket too tightly which casing poor mechanics and extra stress on your elbow. You may like to check that the racket grip isn't too small for your hand, this can also cause you to hold on too tightly

I am happy to report that my tennis elbow pain had not came back!!
I have tennis elbow pain for 4 months, I did the elbow stretch excise and rested. I don't have pain for daily activity, but feel pain making the badminton swing and when I stretch. I played couple times last month with arm band, but the pain just wouldn't go away.
I have acupuncture done last Saturday. I waited couple days, and all the pains are gone. I went to play last night(Tuesday). I felt no pain during play and the next morning.
I will continue report my progress, I think acupuncture worked in my case.

I just started playing badminton and I played my first match today.
Now I feel how it hurts in elbow.
I'm worried that I wasted alot of money on my Arc10.
I HOPE it's bad technique from my side and that it won't happpen with proper use and also not doin as hard training.

Find a good physio ...... this will save you time and more than likely shorten your pain time.

Hey guys, thanks for the responses, im getting better now. so far it´s been 4 or 5 days now that i didnt feel any pain at all after resting for a week, and i´ve done the stretching tecnique that slam_w2k shared to me. and i think it´s really effective,heehehe. i ditch the physio, didnt went there, i tried to observe and do some basic care and the stretching techniques i guessed it works. i´m going back to court later on and try if im really over with this injury... thanks a lot all. i´ll back tomorrow for some updates..ööö
