    Hey Joe, I’m curious if you can go into a little more depth into what a personal trainers true scope of practice is dealing with clients. I know you’ve said before that they should only be dealing with contractions which I 100% agree with. However, it seems every gym I’ve worked at over the years, the majority of PTs I’ve worked with dont adhere to that. They’re always SMRing people with theraguns and lacrosse balls, or they’re aggressively stretching them, etc. some will
    Say they’re certified in trigger point or AIS (active isolated stretching) or some will even say they’re ‘theragun certified’ whatever that is. Is any of this truly aloud and could this be problematic in your opinion?
