Modified Retro Walking

Joan Hanson, MPT, PRC recently sent us this email:

“I was working with a patient yesterday on retrowalking. She had sufficient adductor strength to be on her feet but she locked up during retrowalking. She was turning on her TFL each time she picked up her foot to move it backwards. I therefore had her slide her foot backwards along the carpet and she was able to hold a neutral pelvis. I now call this retroslide. I realize that this patient eventually must be able to pick up her foot and keep a neutral pelvis (gait) but the retroslide will just be a precursor to the retrowalking.”
