Robert and Jeff realised they share a passion to help their clients achieve their goals in physiotherapy. They're doing this by finding the underlying cause of the problem, not just treating the symptoms.
Next Generation Physiotherapy are dedicated to holistic health, using it to assist in pain reduction, maximising the individual function, and seeing a real change in their clients.
As allied healthcare leaders, they agreed that they could work well together, and realising after working in large hospitals that different adjunct treatments could be offered in private practice.
When Robert had a stroke, he was confined to a wheelchair and both of them found a great way to continue to give their clients a high standard of care, which is that they attend every appointment. While Robert listening and asking questions, Jeff is doing the physical exams. They pride themselves on going above and beyond for all of their clients.
