Clinical Pilates adds an additional element of clinical knowledge that is applied to all of the Pilates exercises. Clinical Pilates is a safe and effective form of exercise in retraining the core stabilising muscles and therefore can be used by a population of diverse individuals across all age groups to rehabilitate or to prevent further injuries.
Clinical Pilates is a mind-body intervention that focuses predominantly on core stability, posture, strength, flexibility, control, balance and breathing.

This nevertheless prevents and avoids the recruitment and activation of the compensatory muscle groups.
