Top 5 Badminton Injuries

Sprained Ankle

Select an injury location on the badminton player

What is a Sprained Ankle?

A Sprained Ankle is the single most common injury in Badminton. Some research papers report that ankle sprains account for around half of all injuries in Badminton, although the exact number is unknown.

The rapid changes in direction that are required during Badminton can cause the ankle to roll over, particularly if the player is fatigued. Footwear that 'grips' the surface too much can also cause a Sprained Ankle in Badminton.

A Sprained Ankle refers to damage to the ankle ligaments and other soft tissues around the ankle. The ligament damage causes bleeding within the tissues and an extremely painful swollen ankle.

What can you do to prevent a Sprained Ankle?

Wearing the correct footwear that allows a small amount of 'slide' over the court surface can prevent an ankle twist. Applying an Ankle Brace or Taping the ankle can also help to reduce the risk of a Sprained Ankle. Research from basketball has shown that the injury incidence in people with taped ankles was 4.9 ankle sprains per 1000 participant matches, compared with 2.6 ankle sprains per 1000 participant matches in students wearing Ankle Braces. This compared with 32.8 ankle sprains per 1000 participant matches in subjects who didn't use taping or bracing.

What should you do if you suffer a Sprained Ankle?

Immediately following a Sprained Ankle it is important to follow the RICE protocol - rest, ice, compression and elevation (never apply ice directly to the skin). Ice Therapy can reduce pain but pain-relieving medication may also be necessary. It is important not to put too much weight on the damaged ankle, so a Removable Plastic Cast Walker can be helpful to provide, protection and support and to allow early walking.

Rehabilitation with a Chartered Physiotherapist significantly improves the outcome following a Sprained Ankle. In the later stages of Sprained Ankle rehab Wobble Board training is designed to assist the re-education of balance and proprioception. Research has suggested that patients with ankle instability who underwent Wobble Board training experienced significantly fewer recurrent sprains during a follow-up period than those who did not follow the proprioception training programme.
