All you need is this:

ProxyPass / http://backend.example.com/
ProxyPassReverse / http://backend.example.com/

The first line does the actual reverse proxying. The second line makes
sure that redirects (in the form of Location: headers) are translated
properly so that you don't end up bypassing your proxy.

Remember that your browsers are only going to see the reverse proxy - so
make sure your URLs are correct to the proxy, not the backend machine. A
general rule to avoid problems is to make sure that your URL on the
frontend and the URL on the backend are the same, eg:

ProxyPass /some/section/ http://backend.example.com/some/section/
ProxyPassReverse /some/section/ http://backend.example.com/some/section/
