EFFECTIVENESS OF RETROWALKING IN CHRONIC OSTEOARTHRITIS OF KNEE JOINT
Background and need; Knee osteo arthritis (OA) is a metabolically active, dynamic disease that includes both destruction and repair mechanism that may be triggered by biomechanical and mechanical…

Backward walking at three levels of treadmill inclination: an electromyographic and kinematic analysis.
- Medicine, BiologyThe Journal of orthopaedic and sports physical therapy
The results of this investigation confirm that backward walking up an incline may place additional muscular demands on an individual.
Backward walking: a simple reversal of forward walking?
- Biology, PsychologyJournal of motor behavior
Electromyographic, joint angle, joint moment, and joint muscle power patterns were compared for forward and backward walking and it was suggested that somewhat similar muscle activation patterns could be used to produce both modes of locomotion, but the temporal cycling of muscle contraction would be reversed.
Kinematics, ground reaction force, and muscle balance produced by backward running.
- EducationThe Journal of orthopaedic and sports physical therapy
It is concluded that backward running produced lower Fz stress than FR and improved knee extensor torque at low speeds and may be clinically useful for reducing stress to injured joints and for increasing knee Extensor strength.
Backward Walking : A Possible Active Exercise for Low Back Pain Reduction and Enhanced Function in Athletes
Investigation of the effectiveness of a backward walking exercise program in alleviating low back pain and enhancing function in athletes suggests that backward walking may reduce LBP and enhance function for athletes.
Backward walking training improves balance in school-aged boys
- EducationSports medicine, arthroscopy, rehabilitation, therapy & technology : SMARTT
Backward walking training in school-aged boys can improve balance and there was no difference between control and experimental groups in the kinematics of both FW and BW gaits after the BW training.
Effects of Backward Walking on Hamstring Flexibility and Low Back Range of Motion
Results of the study suggest that a 4-week intervention of backward walking appears to provide an appropriate stimulus for an increase in flexibility of the hamstrings.
