The Society of Weight-Training Injury Specialists (SWIS) was founded in 1999 by Dr. Ken Kinakin D.C., CSCS, CPT. After years of treating patients and teaching to fitness professionals around the world, Dr. Kinakin found there was a noticeable lack of educational information, a void, in the area of prevention and treatment of weight-training injuries. He created the "Society of Weight-Training Injury Specialists" to fill help this void.
