Consider this my out-of-office...

Well sports fans, I've got a small announcement to make.

Some of you might know that I've been pretty probe to back injuries as a result of a slipped disc.. The latest in my string of ill-fated back problems comes in the form of a sciatica diagnosis, which I find strange because I didn't even fall or perform anything drastic to agitate it.

That's when the disc bulge causes a pinch in the nerves that can, in my case, result in a sharp pain radiating down the thigh.

Recovery for this case will take some time. I'm not being optimistic about this though, and even if I were to recover I don't think I'll be able to play at any level I'm used to...

So I guess this will be my early retirement notice. I probably won't be able to review any new rackets, but I will still do my best to answer the questions that stream in based on previous experience.

It's been a good run, and while I will take my time to heal up, I am definitely looking forward to playing this wonderful game again one day. I've met a few friends here, and also received a lot of compliments from shuttlers all over the world.

Please keep enjoying the game, and I do hope to be able to join you guys once more.

hope you recover well and soon........thereafter maybe you could try yoga (and regular stretching).....it certainly helped me and prolong my badminton activities (51 this year)

Thanks a lot for the encouragement guys!

@Boon_Keng I'm stretching and looking at yoga when I can move a bit more, thanks! Also seeing a chiropractor who's done an amazing job at getting me mobile.

@Job I'm not sure I'll ever be able to play at my previous level though... maybe in a few years.. haha

@Ferdian Thanks man.. that was really heartening to hear :)
