  1. Hey Caitlin,

    Thanks for the positive feedback! We’re trying to make this site better all the time, and your encouragement makes us try even harder.

    If you attempt any self-therapy techniques (SMR or other)and you have any increase in pain or muscular dysfunction, then you need to see a qualified therapist to get a proper diagnosis. Not all muscle problems (trigger points, adhesions, contraction knots, etc.) can nor should they be addressed all by yourself.

    Here’s a quick answer to your question:

    If you apply pressure to the affected area (although it might be really uncomfortable at first) and the tightness seems to decrease along with the functional use of your leg muscles increase, then proceed to train and do your SMR homework at the same time.

    Otherwise, be smart and ask someone qualified for their hands-on assistance.

    Good luck, and keep us posted on your progress!

  2. HI Jeff, I’m pghgirl100 on your youtube vidio about quad TP’s. I just have a quick question…do I have to stop running for this TP to heal? Or can I still work it out and run at the same time?

    Thanks for all of your help and your website rocks
