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
