A rather common opinion about badminton is that it is one of the safest games possible-a fun, family game innocent of malice and devoid of any real danger of injury. Such notions are highly probable, given the immense popularity of the game worldwide, as entertainment for children during playtime and a serious Olympic sport.
However, contrary to popular opinion, badminton players are also prone to injury-some so intense in nature that they may take months to heal completely. According to one study conducted by a Denmark-based group of doctors and published in 2006, badminton injuries occur at an average rate of 2.9/person every 1000 hours of playtime. Despite being a non-contact sport, where there is no physical contact between the opposing players, badminton injuries happen frequently-mostly due to overuse of certain parts of the body and sometimes because of accidents happening suddenly and painfully.
Mostly they occur in players who wear the wrong shoes, do not warm-up, warm up more than required, sport bad technique, are overweight, or are generally unfit. Injuries are witnessed in players who have not indulged in the sport for a while, as well as in seasoned players who have overused body parts such as wrists, ankles, knees, and elbows, to name a few.
Ankle Sprains- Although still wanting in detailed statistical studies, some research papers have shown that, on average, ankle sprains constitute more than half of all reported badminton injuries. An ankles sprain can be described as the stretching and tearing of ligaments and muscles in the ankle. In extreme cases, there may also be damage to tendons, bones, and other joint tissues. The resulting bleeding within tissues can cause sudden edema and swelling of the ankle, which is third-degree sprains, often takes more than 6 months to heal completely.
Ankle sprains are accidental in 99% of the incidences and happen when the player lands on his partner’s foot or the floor with his own foot turned inwards, outwards, or flexed. The rapid directional changes required during badminton often cause the feet to roll over or twist, resulting in a sprained ankle. Fatigue, extra body weight, and shoes with more than normal ‘grip’ are frequent contributors to such injuries.
Meniscus Tear also goes by the layman-friendly alias ‘Torn Cartilage Knee Injury’ and is as painful as a sprained ankle. During the intricate footwork required during a badminton game, the meniscus or cartilage, which provides a soft cushioning between the thigh and shin bones, sometimes ruptures, causing pain in the knee joint line swelling and inability to flex the leg completely. This may also be accompanied by an injured or totally ruptured ligament, increasing the pain factor and healing time. Normally, the swelling and pain settle down easily for most people. However, for some sportspersons, the knee can become prone to knee locking or ‘giving way,’ in which case surgery is required.
Muscle Strain- Unexpected movements, such as a sudden overhead smash, may put muscles in various parts of the body under pressure, thereby disrupting fibers in the affected muscle. This can result in pain, swelling, bruising, and, in extreme cases, loss of function. Muscles commonly affected are the hamstring, knee, shoulder, and calf, to name a few.
