Promoting functional and eccentric strength in runners is one way to prevent injuries. We identify common running injuries at specific sites of the body, such as lower back, hip, knee, ankles, and between body segments. Through the use of examples and illustrations of both functional and eccentric training, we suggest activities performed with commonly used modalities of body weight, machines, medicine balls, and stretch bands while highlighting necessary modifications using a PRīMFIT™ unstable surface product. In addition, we identify preventive mechanisms of the specific injuries, training modifications, and reasons for their effectiveness.
