Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) Hydrotherapy is an outpatient service run by RNSH Physiotherapy at Graythwaite Rehabilitation Centre, Ryde Hospital. It is offered as a six week program with the opportunity of two sessions per week. Our aim is to provide the participant with an individualised program that they can work towards completing independently to assist in the management of many conditions such as back and joint pain, rheumatological conditions or post musculoskeletal surgery.



You are eligible to participate in hydrotherapy once we receive an appropriate referral and medical clearance form, and you are able to access the pool independently (considerations given to postoperative weight bearing status).


A referral from a Medical Specialist, your GP or RNSH/Ryde physiotherapist is required. Once a referral is received we require a land-based assessment be completed with a RNSH physiotherapist to determine the suitability of hydrotherapy for you and to establish collaborative goals of such therapy.
