I got new shoes and nice insoles and also i had some chiropractics but i dont really believe in it. I use Dr.Scholls with mizunos and it works pretty well. If your practice for 2-3+ hours no matter what u do it will always hurt.

Sometimes the first few steps are a bit painful first thing in the morning after a hard league match. It usually goes away after a shower though.

Good shoes and off the shelf inserts are frequently not enough.

Dr.Scholls and such are just foot pillows, even the ones with plastic arches aren't supportive enough to prevent foot pain.

Once my chiropractor put me in HARD SUPPORTIVE CORK ORTHOTICS (heel and arch support that you transfer to EVERY pair of shoes you wear) my foot pain (heel and ball) went away.

I play 2-3x a week (usually 2 days on concrete) and 2-3 hours a session. I no longer have foot pain.

p.s.
Can a moderator merge this with the main thread on foot pain and bump the thread to the first page?

Funny you mention foot pain, for some reason I WAKE up with really sore feet every morning but they are fine during the day?. Make no sense. But I have a few broken bones a stuff poking out sharp in my feet (don't know when or how I broke them but clearly I have at some stage). I've also had problem with the arches in my feet when I was younger and had to wear those arch support things for a while but that's ok now. The pain now is in the top of my feet and around the ankle. I think because I have bowed calfs a bit that cause's my ankle issues. I really need to try harder to not bash my feet around so much when looping

It's interesting to see that you have posted five times on this forum and every single one of them has turned out to be an advert for "Orthofeet".  I suspect that you have some financial interest in this product.

This is a ridiculously ancient thread resurrected by a spammer who is trying to sell stuff.

But in case there is interest, you can look at this.  This condition happens a lot of racket sports athletes.

When I had foot issues from Pong, I went to a physical therapist. 

Who recommended some plastic orthotics that he sold. I bought several pair for different shoes.

They were much better than any of the "gel insole" or "pharmacy footbeds" that I had been purchasing bi monthly.

Shoes !!

Stop wearing TT shoe..... and switch to tennis shoe or indoor volleyball shoe with good heel support, and the problem will magically disappear in 2 months.

Do not wear TT shoes (Thin sole) unless you are on TT Floor (padded rubber floor) !!

I had had pain at the medial longditudinal arch for half year and needed to stop playing over that period. It was the shoes. You need to get a new pair. BTW, tt thick socks help.

I bitterly agree. I was so euphoric when bought !!!two pairs of Mizuno Wave Medal 5, untill couple of months later I realised that my heels are killing me after training. Prior to those I've had Gel Blades 3, 4 and a pair of sturdy voleyball shoes(gel Sensei 4) and never knew what pain in the heels was, although couple of years ago I was training even more.
Few weeks ago I bought beautiful pair of Li Ning badminton shoes and the pain is already much less. I hope that soon it will be all gone

Same thing happened with me. I still go to the club wearing my TT shoes and then change to my regular trainers with nice thick spongy soles. And then I change back walk out in my TT shoes. I mean I bought them, and they do look nice so I might as well look the part right? Big smile

Which Li Ning shoes did you buy and from where?

I also purchased Wave Medal 5 a few months back and at first they felt great but now I've got constant pain in both of my knees, ankles and soles. So it definitely has to be the shoes causing this pain!

Any recommendations for playing on a dirty and slightly slippery surface? Basically it's a local rubber mat much like plastic.

I bought Li Ning Metal X from here
https://badmania.fr/badminton-li-ning-metal-x-td-men-18fp288.html
I quess it's too early to make statements, but so far they seem to be very comfortable and super steady , better cusioning on the heels and the grip is definitely better, but haven't tested them in different clubs yet.
If you're in Europe you may also take a look here

...and here

There are apparently many more online shops (Amazon as well) which offer quality badminton and squash shoes. BTW I noticed that Li Ning is the official sponsor for CNT

Probably plantar fasciitis. Too much stress on the foot from overwork. Took me five years of complete rest to recover. But I was in my later 50s. Younger people can probably recover faster. Shoes may help but maybe not. All depends upon the nature of the inflammation and damage. There is no magic bullet that I know of other than rest.

I just found other hobbies until it healed. Otherwise it gets worse. I over did it so I learned something. Now I play in moderation.

KX KT taping or any kind of taping will help with Plantar Fascitis. Also fix your gait or it will travel up the leg to the knees or hips which can make it very very difficult to fix.

Calf stretches and massages of the fascia help if you’re dealing with plantar fasciitis. Additionally use soft gel insoles for your shoes, that’s what I did and it got much better.

kolev,

It almost certainly is plantar fasciitis from the way you describe it.  Not something to mess with.  I will re-post this link for you.  You really should go see a specialist about this because when it gets bad it can have a horrible effect on your quality of life.  I have a colleague who has it so bad he can't really walk without pain.

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/plantar-fasciitis/symptoms-causes/syc-20354846

If you have to take some time off TT because of it, I recommend buying a bicycle.  You can maintain your fitness and turn the pedals without making your feet worse.
