This ends up putting strain on the lower body and we are less efficient in our movement. Exercising the core muscles reduces the body’s chances of lower limb injuries like sprains. Clinical Pilates focus on stability, neuromuscular retraining and agility. Now studies have been able to show evidence to support the fact that core training and stability training can reduce the chance of lower limb injuries supporting the idea that an injury can be the result of something wrong somewhere else in the body.

Clinical Pilates is a great way to add this essential core strengthening to your training.
