has anybody ever seen a player injure their wrist? I hear a lot of fear-mongering that if a player uses their wrist when they shouldn't then they could injure it. And I suppose they mean bending it forwards. Have you ever seen a player go off the court clutching their wrist unable to play? If I think about what injuries i've seen. It's ankle, leg, shoulder, elbow(if they over-extend), (and hear horror stories re eye - understandable) I haven't seen wrist! I have seen a player at times when maybe midcourt if the shuttle was very high and they're trying to get it down, then maybe using the bend the wrist forward party neutral method, and maybe their wrist got a bit tired and they didn't keep at it. And they don't really keep at it if their wrist were a bit sore they'd often just hit it high or flat instead. I've seen people with a sore shoulder that say they can't clear or smash. (technically one can clear without the shoulder but obviously some don't have the technique to).. I've never seen anybody(supposing eg they have poor technique), say their wrist is sore so they can't play particular shots.. Or if it was then somebody would just say "oh well you shouldn't be bending the wrist forward past neutral for those shots" and then they'd be fine. And then they wouldn't want to bend their wrist forward past neutral anyway as soon as they realise they aren't meant to or don't have to! it seems somebody might have mild soreness at most. (and then not do it anymore). IF somebodys wrist was sore and they are using their wrist to hit it, they'd hardly get the shuttle going anywhere.. It's not like with the shoulder where somebody can swing hard with poor form and a bad shoulder and then hold their shoulder in pain. I've just never seen that happen to anybody with the wrist. So I question the talk of wrist injury claims re regularity and severity.. I've seen and heard players speak of various injuries they have, but nobody ever mentioned that one!
