A ganglion cyst or wrist ganglion is a small lump which appears in the wrist. It is often attached to a ligament. Some are not painful, but others restrict movement and are painful.
On my wrist, I`ve probably overused it with push-ups. The joint wasn`t ready for it and I`ve forced it. It was painful at net lifts on the forehand side and at overhead shots. Lost the power of them. taping, ice and rest helped to recover, it took months. For me, longer warm-ups, working much smaller weights which were raised gradually helped the joint prepare for bigger loads.
However, during lockdown, I`ve got 1 under my right ankle for no reason. No pain, so no treatment required as they say on the below website.
If you have a good Physio, get an appointment as soon as you can or contact your coaches on the session, they can direct you to good doctors near you. Treat an injury as fast as you can is important. But if you treat it wrong, you may cause harm which can halt your badminton career for months which is a lot or can get disability for life. Be smart. If you feel acute pain or worry about your health, do not try to find it out yourself. If your Doctor advised safe to train, tell it to your coaches and they will find an exercise where you won`t use the injured body part but still doing something badminton related. Most of the cases can have a solution to training. Particularly in these times, doing exercises slow is key for fast recovery.
