In order to change this sentence into active voice, both clauses in the sentence must contain a subject that performs the action of the verb.  In the first clause, the subject is "I" and the verb is "saw".  Here, you have the active voice.  In the second clause, the subject is "exercises" and the verb is "have been done".  Here, the subject is not performing an action.  The active form of this sentence would be:

Since I saw my chiropractor, I have been doing my back exercises twice a day.
