Can you play badminton with ddd? Advice please

I was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease in Feb 2010. i had 2 disc prolapses L4 and L5. After lots of physio and swimming, I rarely need medication. I used to play badminton in my teens, I am now 30. Would I be able to take it up again or will it cause further deterioration? I played for half an hour at the weekend and was sore the next day but am fine now.What do you guys think?


  • My Father has DDD and plays golf but never had any disc prolapse. I would ask a Physiatrist(Rehab Dr) for a Professional opinion on kinds of exercise you can do. For me with DDD and disc issues and facet joint issues all I can do is walk or swim or do aquatherapy classes in a warm water pool. But that;s just me. All the best. Charry
