Active Life Concepts

Active Life Concepts is a Chapel Hill based company geared toward helping people of all ages and abilities improve their overall health and wellness. Owned and operated by Dr. Stewart Peters, Active Life Concepts works with individuals to set realistic health and fitness goals and implement specific plans to achieve those goals.

The mission of Active Life Concepts is to educate patients, coaches and athletes on proper nutrition, injury prevention and treatment, rehabilitation after injury, and the appropriate strength and conditioning training needed to optimize an individual’s performance and recovery.

  • Philosophy Behind Active Life Concepts

    As a licensed chiropractor and nutritionist, Dr. Peters believes that restoring and maintaining joint and soft tissue function will eliminate symptoms and improve the human body’s overall function and performance. Dr. Peters likes his patients to pursue an active role in their treatment by participating in biomechanics seminars and practicing the techniques learned to improve their overall range of motion, strength, and coordination.

    Dr. Peters believes that nutrition plays a vital role in a person’s overall health, and consults with patients and athletes on their specific nutrition to ensure proper recovery from intense exercise or injury. He believes that regularly measuring biometrics, setting realistic goals, designing nutrition plans based on the athlete’s goals, and periodically re-assessing the individual’s biometrics is the most accurate way to determine health progression. Dr. Peters also strongly believes in patient education and empowering patients to improve the quality of their lives because patients who know more about their own conditions stay healthier.
