At Loveland Family Wellness, we take a head-to-toe look at your health to deliver the most effective care that your body needs. We’ll start with your ankles, making our way to your knees, hips, and spine, utilizing testing that allows your body to show us where assistance is needed.
Dr. Peterson, Chiropractor Loveland, is an expert in the health of your nerve system. If there is pressure present on a nerve, it can show up as different forms of sickness, pain, and disease. By removing this pressure, your nerve can communicate properly with the rest of your body.
Specific, Thorough Health Care
The gentle Activator® instrument is our primary method of adjusting, which we’ll demonstrate on your finger. It was developed in 1974, and Dr. Peterson honed his expertise with Dr. Fisher, the co-author of the textbook on the Activator. Rather than using force, the Activator concentrates on speed and precision. Dr. Peterson may also use a drop technique when needed. There are different additional therapies we offer to complement your chiropractic care, including:
- Flexion-distraction table
- Laser therapy
Beginning Your Healing
When you first begin care as a new patient, we’ll likely recommend more frequent visits to start your healing, tapering off as you get better. You may feel some soreness after your first adjustment, which is completely normal. If necessary, Dr. Peterson can refer you for blood work to understand exactly what your body requires to get better.

Learn more about Activator Methods®
We use one of the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world.
First the Evaluation
We begin by analyzing how well your spine moves. We test how well you turn and bend. While you’re lying face down, we’ll evaluate the length of your legs. This simple procedure can reveal significant differences in leg lengths. This time-tested protocol tells us if nerve interferences exist and their location. It also helps us know when to adjust and when not to adjust.
The Adjusting Instrument
The Activator Methods® Adjusting Instrument is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. Because it’s many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, the body rarely tightens to resist, making adjustments comfortable and effective. It’s also helpful for adjusting elbows, wrists, knees and other joints of the body.
The Follow Up
After your adjustment, we retest to make sure changes have been produced. Testing afterward helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of patient satisfaction.
