From clinic-opener to team member: Welcome Steve Hard!

Sep 9, 2021

Steve Hard, physiotherapist

Exciting news! We are delighted to announce that highly experienced physiotherapist Steve Hard has joined our team.

Cutting the ribbon in 2019

Steve officially cut the ribbon to open Bridge Health & Wellbeing in July 2019. As the lead physiotherapist at Bournemouth Football Club at the time, we were so pleased he took the time to come and help us celebrate our opening.

After months of renovation (and years of dreaming!) the doors to our health and wellbeing clinic in Christchurch, Dorset were finally open.

Fast forward two years, a global pandemic, three lockdowns and countless appointments and classes later and we are delighted that Steve has come full circle to join our physio team.

“We are thrilled that, after being released by the club, Steve has chosen to join us at Bridge Health & Wellbeing. Steve and I originally trained together at the University of North London, completing our Sports Therapy degrees. He has been part of our Bridge Health & Wellbeing journey, right from the start. We are delighted to be able to bring his skills to the clinic and looking forward to working with him.”

Paul O’Connell, Physiotherapist and co-founder

Steve has many years of physiotherapy experience and a keen interest in sports medicine. He has spent 20 years working in professional football at both AFC Bournemouth and Millwall FC respectively.

“Paul has been very busy with physio patients over the past few months. So we were looking for a new physiotherapist to join our team. When we found out Steve had become available, we were really keen to get him on board. We can now offer even more physio appointments to our clients, as well as provide expertise in specific sports-related injuries.”

We have also expanded the gym and rehabilitation services this year, including opening up the space for more equipment to assist with recovery.
