If an action increases the reaction rate in a particular equilibrium mixture, does it mean that both forward and backward rates are increased?

Say for example we increase the temperature in a closed system containing gaseous reactants. The forward reaction is exothermic so the yield of the product will decrease as we increase the temperature. But increasing the temperature increases the reaction rate so does it mean that the forward and backward rates are both increased ?
