How to walk well to avoid posture problems and back, foot or joint pain explained by the two most popular physiotherapists on the web





Walking is one of those things that is done intuitively, but often done wrong. Bob and Brad, the "most famous physiotherapists on the Internet" in a new one video they want to show you all the benefits of walking correctly: less pain in the hip, spine, knee, neck, back and feet. Some people even have headaches while walking due to the bad posture.

So where to start? The first rule of walking (as in running) is reduce the impact. Landing on the heel first, for example, sends a shock to the rest of the leg, while placing the forefoot or midfoot first allows for better shock absorption. If you walk on your heels, one way to do it best is to lean forward slightly, this will help you land on the forefoot or midfoot and get your glutes to work too.

Posture also matters, so avoid tilting your head too far forward, your ears should be in line with your shoulders and your arms shouldn't be curved in front. 

A tip in case of back pain while walking, is to try to walk faster: this distributes the weight differently, which means that it will put less pressure on the spine.
