This research brings evidence that rowing represents a valid sports model for helping both healthy and paramorphic people in changing unhealthy back positions. In particular, this study analyzed the changes induced to the back of twenty well trained athletes. Furthermore, it was taken into consideration a case of an athlete who presented a case of kyphosis and lordosys. This study was carried on for a period of two years during which it was observed that both kyphosis and lordosys had disappeared in the subject observed for this study. The quantitative and qualitative variables taken into account here, demonstrate that the positive results for correcting and self-correcting the position of one’s back that are normally included in rowing are linked with the rowing technique. As a matter of fact, a correct execution of the pelvis’ movements is continuously taken into consideration in rowing as this is necessarily included at any stroke as a fundamental part of the same exercise. The rotation of pelvis is crucial in rowing, therefore this is strictly monitored by the rowing coach who has the task to check his athletes be alternating the position of their pelvis from an anteversion to a retroversion position while they are rowing.
