Badminton injuries. 

I've definitely had my fair share from hip surgery, cortisone injections in my hip, ankle, feet and toe. Back injuries. Shoulder injuries. Elbow. Neck. Knee. Quadricep. Hamstring. Calf. Rotator cuff. You name it - I've probably had it in some way, shape or form.

Badminton is quite an unforgiving sport for the body. There's lots of jumping, leaping and bounding, plus a lot of stop-start movements which are heavy on the joints and muscles. Sprains, slips, strains and tears are all common badminton injuries. And there's the fact that it is one-side dominant.

That's why we brought Justin on for Episode 9 of The Badminton Podcast.
