Jo Pinny D.O., N.D.
Jo trained for 4 years at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, qualifying in 1992. She is registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
What influenced you to become an osteopath?
I first became aware of osteopathy aged 14, when my mum had some osteopathic treatment. I was really impressed with the improvement in her health and was inspired to find out more! Because I like helping people, enjoy working with my hands and have always been fascinated by how the body works, going into osteopathy was a natural choice for me.
When did you join the team?
After qualifying, I gained experience in a number of private practices and NHS settings before joining Jason in the practice in 1996.
What do you enjoy most about your role at North Beds Osteopaths?
I like working with a team of like-minded people whose shared aim is to help our patients. I do my best to understand each person’s problem and find an approach that works for them. One of my favourite parts of practice is treating generations of the same family, and I especially enjoy helping a patient experience an improvement in their condition for the first time!
What specialist areas of practice are you particularly interested in?
I treat a wide variety of problems across people of all ages. I have postgraduate training and a special interest in cranial osteopathy (including the Biodynamic approach) and paediatrics. My postgraduate training also extends to dry needling which I sometimes use alongside osteopathic treatment.
How do you like to spend your spare time?
I’m a mum to 2 lovely girls and enjoy spending time with family and friends, being active and out walking with our dog, Murphy. Other favourite activities include bike rides, music, cooking, and gardening.
