Meet Loveland Chiropractor, Donald Peterson

Gaining an Understanding of Natural Healing

Chiropractor Loveland, Dr. Donald PetersonDr. Peterson spent more than two decades as a medic with the Green Berets. He would travel to developing nations for medical civil action programs, which involved taking patient histories, doing physical examinations and finally, giving out medication after medication. “It never sat right with me.”

He considered becoming a Physician’s Assistant until he spoke with his nephew, who was in chiropractic school. He said Dr. Peterson should check out chiropractic.

I found out it was natural, didn’t use drugs and allowed the body to heal itself. That made so much more sense!”

Obtaining a Chiropractic Education

He attended Life University in Marietta, Georgia, the same institution his nephew was enrolled at. There, he learned about Activator Methods®, which is the primary chiropractic technique used at Loveland Family Wellness. This system of analyzation lets your body tell us what it needs, then applies an extremely specific correction to help you get better.

Dr. Peterson is also currently working through a 24 month course to becoming a DABCI – Diplomata American Board of Chiropractic Internist.

Enjoying Life in Loveland

Growing up in Boulder, Dr. Peterson has done his fair share of rock climbing, ice climbing and kayaking. In his spare time, he enjoys watching movies and reading books. He’s also a member of the Loveland Chamber of Commerce and the local Kiwanis club.
