In brief: Hard to know

Probably won't help with progression in adolescence, but could potentially help decrease episodes of back pain as an adult.

In brief: Pilates core better

Back muscles get a daily workout but theabs are a back muscle spine flexor work out all the back muscles front and back many structural curves envolve only the thoracic spine so keeping all the lumbar muacles strong can compensate for spinal imbalance dont forget the abs.
