    well there are a lot more overhead shots in badminton, compared to tennis, so that could contribute to your back

    knees, could be the lunges that you have to do and the constant explosive movements required.

    do you stretch before playing?
    what level do you play at? (like relaxed rallies, medium paced, or fast pace with tons of back and forth)

    see a doc? =)

    We play competitive matches that are fast paced with lots of smashes and drop shots. I don't stretch much at all.

    then my suggestion would to be stretch

    and to strengthen your leg and back muscles off court =)
