Past President of the Chiropactors Association Of Australia (Qld)


Peter has studied most everything that is relevent in natural health care so that he could understand which treatment would most benefit his patients.

He does not pretend to practice in all of the fields that he has studied.

He keeps himself quite busy with one modality and has gathered a team of experts in all of the other modalities, to ensure that his patients receive the best of care from practitioners who are highly and specifically qualified.

As a chiropractor and osteopath he mainly sees people with aches and pains that are attributed to a perceived musculoskeletal problem.

Often, this is not the case as many of these people actually have an organic (non-musculoskeletal) condition and they need treatment that is outside the scope of a chiropractor or osteopath. If Dr Pedersen finds that you have a condition that he cannot treat, you won't have to travel far... the expert will be in the room next door!


Dr Pedersen's practice was established in 1980,

"Surfers Paradise Natural Therapies Group Practice"

and moved to Nerang in '84
