Firstly, there are people far worse off than us here at Next-Gen with the current COVID-19 worldwide crisis.
The worldwide death and morbidity rates are alarming, tragic and unfathomable. The loss of jobs, livelihoods, and businesses are also hard for me to get my head around.
I keep thinking that we are going to all wake up from this bad dream. The suffering experienced, it’s difficult to put into words.
Locally, our hearts go out to all those in our community who are now unemployed. Businesses who have been forced to close, some forever. Some of these are businesses who we have worked so closely with over the last 6 years and who have supported the Next-Gen dream and helped us grow into what we are today.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us. Whether you have been an “OG” Next-Gen patient or you have only been to the clinic once or twice. I hope we have been able to help you, I’m sure we would of given it our all.
The question we have been asked most today “are you still open?” The answer is YES.
I wouldn’t go as far as saying we are “business as usual” (how can we be in this time!?) But we are here taking appointments and ready to help, we know how much some of our patients rely on us for pain relief and for their injury rehab plans.

With all of the information in the media, we continue to be advised by the Department of Health, the NSW Government, the Australian Physiotherapy Association, and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
Our doors will remain open until we are advised alternatively. We urge you that if you think you need an appointment over the coming weeks, it might be a good idea to book online or give us a call. We aren’t sure how much longer we will remain open.
More than this though. Way more importantly. We are here for you, we are here for each other. If you want to chat, please reach out to us. Whether you are in pain, feeling down, if you aren’t feeling ok… it doesn’t matter the reason. Please let us know if you need anything – Physio related or otherwise. We are all here for you.
I can promise you Next-Gen will be stronger after this. We all will.
Love all the Next-Gen Team – Tom, Dave, Mikka, Soph, April, Adam, Alisha, Kim, and Kirra
