Jonna Pedersen – Chiropractor
I was born and grew up in Denmark and chose chiropractic to be my path from age 16. At the time you couldn’t study Chiropractic in Denmark so I came to England to study at Anglo European College of Chiropractic in beautiful Bournemouth where I graduated from in 1991.
Initially I worked for two clinics in Nottingham and Derby but soon started up on my own in Sherwood in 1993. We have been in our existing clinic on Winchester Street since 2003 and it is lovely, peaceful surroundings to both visit and work in. My husband is also a chiropractor and as a partnership we run 3 busy clinics (the other two are in Mansfield and Sheffield) although I only see patients at our Nottingham branch.
I love helping people improve their lives and this often involves looking beyond the pain and stiffness my patients initially present with. A holistic approach, where I look at the whole person, and take time to listen when needed and appropriate, is important to me. I have a special interest and a big soft spot for treating pregnant women, babies and children and our clinic is very family friendly. I enjoy treating and working with people of all ages and all walks of life.
Over the 24 years I have worked as a chiropractor I have obviously gained a lot of experience and continuously expand my ‘toolbox’ of therapies to support the chiropractic care and further my knowledge. I still get amazed at some of the results I see and love what I do – I feel very lucky and privileged to have made a career out of helping people.
Outside of the clinic I look after our 2 nearly grown children (one who also wants to be a chiropractor), my husband, the house and the paperwork for the 3 clinics. When time allows and the sun is shining you may see me with my Nordic Walking sticks around our local countryside. We love to socialise and travel and a new challenge will be to learn Italian.
I am registered with the General Chiropractic Council and a member of the British Chiropractic Association and The Royal College of Chiropractors.
