You can also take the help of reverse walking to get rid of knee pain and cramps. This walk is also very beneficial for arthritis patients. People who have frequent back pain problems should also do reverse walking daily from 10 am to 3 pm.

2. Difficulty in seeing: Since reverse walking involves walking backwards, there is an increased risk of hitting something or falling. Because as much as you can see your steps while walking forward, you cannot see them while walking backwards.
