Back Stepping - a technique used to descend steps that is easier on one's knees and is often used when one's knees are giving one considerable pain. When one comes to a place to step down one plants one foot sideways to the edge of the step with the instep of the foot closest to the edge, turns and steps down and back with the other foot. This technique is more controlled and thus easier on the knees than stepping forward off the step.
