What is retro walking? 5 unexpected health benefit

Bored with your usual morning walk? Try retro-walking

Retro-walking is simply walking by putting one foot behind the other, or in simpler words, walking backward

Reverse walking requires you to go against your usual motion, which means you will require better coordination of your body.

Your mind stays focused on guiding you better since you lack any visual inputs and only rely on your body awareness.

This improves your mind-body coordination and helps you have a better sense of your limb and body positioning

For patients who have osteoarthritis in their knees, backward locomotion can be beneficial for reducing pain

Therefore, the intensity of pain in the knee is reduced.
