    Badminton accident claim


    There are a number of different injuries that can occur while playing badminton some of which will happen simply because of an accident. However, others might be due to someone else’s negligence, and you could be entitled to make a badminton accident claim.

    The main badminton injuries

    If you’ve suffered an injury and you want to make a badminton accident claim, Accident Advice Helpline can help. There are a number of injuries that are common for badminton players. These can sometimes be alleviated by medication or physiotherapy and it may be necessary to have a period of counselling if the injury is particularly severe and traumatic.

    Sprained ankle

    This is the most common type of injury for badminton players. It often stems from quick directional changes, which causes ligament and tissue damage within the ankle area. The best way to reduce the damage caused by a sprained ankle is to follow the advice of rest, ice, compression and elevation. Physiotherapy can also improve the situation and will help regain long-term strength and flexibility.

    Achilles tendon injuries

    Difficulties with the Achilles tendon are also a frequent problem for badminton players. In these cases, the area around the tendon will be painful. These types of injuries are often a gradual process rather than occurring from a single event. In general, rest is the best option to enable the damage to repair itself.

    Tennis elbow

    Gripping the racquet in badminton for long periods can cause this injury. This results in the tendons in the forearm becoming inflamed. Recommended treatment for this injury is usually to apply ice to the affected area and to rest to reduce the symptoms. If this is a long-term problem, strengthening exercises should be carried out under the supervision of a physiotherapist.
