Assessing my β€˜ walk it out’ condition

Saw a PM&R doctor who specialized in back pain πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

A PM&R means physical medicine & rehabilitation. My nurse practitioner (NP) friend recommended I see one πŸ€— Defined on Google as β€˜PM&R physicians are medical doctorswho have completed training in the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), and may be subspecialty certified in Brain Injury Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Neuromuscular Medicine, Pain Medicine, Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine, Spinal Cord Injury …’ Also known as a physiatrist. She figured it’d be good to establish care, and I thought β€œWhy not?! πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈβ€

It was good to see someone! I’d determined to bring this up to my neurologist πŸ€—

He also told us what to look out for! Spasticity! Meaning increased muscle tone πŸ€” I believe in preventive care, so this information is gold for me πŸ˜‰
