    Kobe Bryant Once said the only reason you feel sore or pain is because you don't stretch and warm up.

    thats not entirely true - sometimes you just put too much stress on a joint or tendon, and it starts to hurt. badminton players often experience problems with their right knee due to the deep lunges and the jumps, which can both damage the knee. thats why its important to practice footwork, wear good shoes and strengthen the leg muscles - for me, improving my footwork really helped/helps with my knee problems. for tournaments and long training sessions (2,5h+) i often tape it, though, just to be on the safe side^^

    PS: that could help with patella problems, and is quite simple to apply. its also very cheap.

    I have been wearing sport shoes insoles for the last several months, and I can fell that my knees, after playing two or three hours of badminton, are not as sore as before . IMO some of those Yonex shoes don't have enough cushion.

    Nice to hear that helps. For me, doing more footwork training does the trick - I tape only about once a week now (4 times training). I dont ever tape for running anymore. Seems like the muscles and tendons adapted - feels nice =)

    Dear all, i am experiencing a knee problem since starting playing on friday, sunday and monday continously. People are saying not to wear knee support as it will block blood flow. I have problem whenever squating or sitting when praying. Can anyone recommend what muscle to train to avoid this pain? people suggesting to do more lunges.

    Its important that your foot points straight forward when you do a lunge - most people tend to have it point slightly inwards (I sometimes do that as well) as it puts less stress on the muscles and more on the joint and thus feels easier. But it leads to knee problems. So, first try to have your foot point into the direction your lunging or even slightly outwards (look at photos of Peter Gade doing a lunge, he has brilliant footwork). To better support your knee, train all muscles involved in lunges - quads, glutes, etc. (squats help _if they dont hurt_, do as many as you can, 2-3 sets with 1-2min break) and also strech those muscles. I find streching the quads helps sometimes.

    Light footwork training (high stance) whilst paying attention to your foot could help train them. Only make steps you're comfortable with - if it hurts, something's wrong or it's too stressful for the hurting joint/muscle.

    Well, there are different problems ppl have as there are different parts of the knee that may be stressed/injured. For me, it was mainly on the inside of the knee (probably Ligamentum collaterale mediale). I just put on some pre-tape (the yellow stuff that doesn't stick to your skin), and then went around the knee 3 times with the athletic tape, just below the patella (sitting with the knee bent, ~110 on the inside). It goes pretty much just over the part that hurts, and by pressing on it, helps relieve the pain and gives some slight support. Be careful not to do it too tight, as it will disrupt your blood flow and become very uncomfortable. If you need more pressure on a certain point and can't tape any tighter without disrupting the blood flow, put something (a bit of folded pre-tape, a paper hanky,.....) on the part where you want more pressure before you tape.

    Interesting, but missing one important thing. If you don't go to a doctor, there are still other people who can help you. For instance, here in Australia we have many physiotherapists who specialise in sports injuries. Often they know things that the average doctor doesn't. I'm sure that similar exist in other countries (possibly under different names).

    Ignoring tennis elbow and just hoping it will go away (as the article suggests) is rather silly. You need someone to give you good advice about managing such an injury. If not your doctor, then go and see someone else.

    As for knee pain, I don't know, but it looks like there is some sensible advice earlier in this thread.

    if your knee hurts that means you have graduated. Rest and swim.

    Uhhh - I got it from amazon, it doesn't help all that much. Better get a brace/bandage, that will cost less....again, I got it from amazon (Germany).
    Looks like this:

    I guess there should be some kind of online shop offering it in Malaysia, or you could ask in a sports shop....Yonex or Victor probably have those as well, if there's a big shop around, ask them.
