I feel minor pain in my knee cap. But I am afraid that it may disturb me to play badminton. I see the doctor he suggested me some calcium and other medicine for 5 days. About reason he said after seeing x-ray it is due to pulling of tendon.

Hello. To start with, badminton as a sport puts a lot of strain on your knee, you will end up with some or the other minor niggles around the knee if you do not strength your muscles around the knee joint. Am sure the consultant did not find any abnormality in the X-ray so don't worry jus start knee strengthening exercises which will keep your knee safe.
