Worker Wellness Competitiveness Profitability by Carol Tschirpke, RPT
Executives, managers, supervisors, and workers as well as union leaders generally agree that employee wellness proves pivotal to competitiveness, productivity, and profitability.

Having said good-bye at last to the frigid temperatures and inclement weather of winter, many take advantage of the longer, sunnier days to spend outdoors. We lace up our running shoes or slip on a helmet to go for a leisurely bike ride. Yet if one gets too enthusiastic in his athletic pursuits, he can sustain an injury that will take him out of the running for the rest of the season. That’s where BioSynchronistics steps in.
If you’ve ever had back pain when sitting on the bleachers at a soccer game or on a wooden park bench, today’s HealthBeat is for you.

As often happens, good things spring from adversity. In 1984 , Cheryl Wilbur (co-founder of Quality Physical Therapy) sustained an injury that did not respond to, what was at the time, accepted means of physical therapy. Thus began the search, along with fellow co-founder Carol Tschirpke, to find the solution to the actual problem that lay behind the pain and discomfort stemming from Cheryl’s injury. Rather than finding a solution among existing treatment therapies, they instead developed their own treatment method and named it BioSynchronistics®.
