Thread: Recurring shoulder pain
04-25-2010, 12:16 AM #69
Although pain is common on the wrists and shoulders, this is often due to poor footwork Striking the shuttle when in an awkward, off-balance position strains the joints. Correct technique not only makes shots more effective, but also avoids injury.
Wrong technique can also cause painful arc/rotator cuff or subacromial joint injuries.
So, maybe you should look at both your footwork and hitting technique.

I'm in a similar position. I took a break for 2 months or so. I usually play twice or three times a week. I get shoulder pains when doing a full smash. I only do half smashes now.
I find that I have to warm up twice as long. The muscle/warming cream helps a little. I have been using the cream for about a week now.
I can do backhand clears and under arm swings (forehand & backhand) no problems. Just not over the head smashes.
Will see how it goes. If things get serious I may have to take a trip to the physio.

nono u r wrong ,
stretching is for everyone, irregardless of age.
if a youngster do stretching regularly ,
his badminton life will be longer and less prone to injury.

The pain has gone away now. I went to the chemist and bought one of those heat cream for pain/muscle. Since then I have no problems smashing. But I still stretch a bit longer after applying the cream though!

cream is only a catalyst
