At Hamilton Specialist Referrals (HSR), our objective is to return our patients to their optimal function as quickly as possible, whether that be a walk around the park or challenging for honours in international competition.

As is the gold standard in human medicine and in professional sport, a well-structured physiotherapy and rehabilitation programme provides patients with the best chance of making a full and speedy recovery. Our highly experienced team of physiotherapists and hydrotherapists provide every patient with an individually tailored recovery programme from the immediate post-operative period or time of injury, right through to sign-off. We have a vast array of treatment modalities at our disposal including a Class IV laser and extracorporeal shock wave therapy. We are keen to work and liaise closely with our referring practices to ensure a high standard of continuity of care.
