Hi--was any trauma involved? Was this painful at first?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No trauma he is an academy footballer and has been training hard , slight pain at first causing him to go and see the Physio whereby after an hour or so he was fine and now no tightness at all
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. Sounds like just a simple muscle pull with some resulting tendonitis just from the hard training Viki. I see no reason for anything more to be done at this point if he's totally fine

Let me know if you need any more information

No mention of muscle pull was mentioned ?just the quad was quite tight ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well that still is a pulled muscle and like I said it was likely just from his hard training--really nothing serious
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok will he still be able to train
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Yes--I see no reason why he can't restart training Viki
