Rotator Cuff Injury

Select an injury location on the badminton player

What is a Rotator Cuff Injury?

Shoulder pain can occur in Badminton players because there are repeated shoulder stresses during Badminton, particularly the overhead shots. The Rotator Cuff muscles (Subscapularis, Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus and Teres Minor) are small muscles situated around the shoulder joint, which can become damaged during the stresses of Badminton.

Typically, Rotator Cuff injuries will begin as inflammation (Tendonitis) caused by small but continuous irritation. If the cause of the inflammation is not addressed, and continues over a long period of time, partial tears may develop in the cuff that could eventually become a tear all the way through one or more of the Rotator Cuff muscles.

What can you do to prevent a Rotator Cuff Injury?

Badminton players must pay attention to flexibility, strength and endurance of the shoulder muscles. Shoulder stabilisation exercises under the supervision of a Chartered Physiotherapist can also help prevent pressure on the Rotator Cuff tendons.

In addition, any increases in the amount of training or competition must be gradual so as not to overload the Rotator Cuff muscles. In particular repetitions of the smash shot should be increased gradually to allow the Rotator Cuff tendons to adapt.

What should you do if you suffer a Rotator Cuff Injury?

Physiotherapy treatment is effective in treating acute (short-term) inflammation and chronic (long-term) degeneration of the cuff where a tear is not present. The first aim of treatment is to reduce the amount of inflammation using Ice Therapy (never apply ice directly to the skin) and anti-inflammatory medication prescribed by a doctor.

Anti-Inflammatory Gel may be more appropriate where anti-inflammatory tablets are not well tolerated. For those who want to continue with Badminton activities a Neoprene Shoulder Support can provide support and reassurance.
