Hi, this came up in a reply I was doing to someone about foot drop.
I though I`d make it a new post, as it could help some here.
In the days when I was able to walk, eons ago now…walking forwards became so dangerous and exhausting for me and when we were in our camper, I found the short distances twixt seat/loo/sink, were better done backwards!
I could slide my feet with no need to lift them!
It sounds daft now, but I didnt realise you have to lift your foot to walk forwards. As long as I had someone or something to hold safely onto, it worked a treat…until the exhaustion factor butted in.
I offered this nugget of info to 2 folk here and they thought it was a good idea and are trying it.
See, there`s a bit of wisdom/experience from this old bird, eh?
