In June of 2014, 3 months into the outdoor soccer season, I had to stop playing soccer due to severe groin pain that was going down my inner thigh. I was 37 years old and this was the first time in my life that I had to completely stop doing sports as I wasn’t able to run in any capacity without pain. Being a very active person, this was a difficult experience. I consulted with my GP, had an ultrasound and later even had an MRI. In January of 2015, it was concluded that I had a sports hernia. After trying out a couple of different physios, in April, I finally went to AST and had a consult with Dr. Dave Westmacott. It was evident from the start that he was experienced with groin injuries as well as having an excellent understanding of bio-mechanics and treatment methods. My treatment showed positive results almost instantly. After each weekly visit, my pain further subsided. In July, I even stepped on to a soccer field again and played the full 90 minutes. After that, treatment frequency dropped to monthly and as of November, I am completely pain free in all activities. Being able to again participate in all sports is life changing. I would highly recommend AST as they are knowledge and use proven treatment methods.- Martin T.
The ongoing treatment that I receive from Dr. Dave Westmacott and his staff at Active Sports Therapy have made such a difference in my training. I am an avid endurance athlete who participates in 24 Hour Solo Mountain Biking events. I started using AST’s services in the beginning of 2011 when I was preparing for a race and was experiencing quite a bit of discomfort on my bike due to a combination of training over 20 hours a week and from the demands of my day job. After treatments from Dr. Dave as well as Deep Tissue Massage Therapy, I am able to train harder and smarter and cannot say enough about them. With confidence I can say that my execution and form on my bike has improved dramatically. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to anyone looking to improve their fitness level, or to simply better their health.- Dave Franks, 24 Hour Solo Mountain Biking Athlete

After 1 year of experimental drugs for my MS, I still don’t understand how you were able to tell that I was missed diagnosed and more importantly how you brought hope and healing into my life. Words simply can’t express my gratitude. Because of you, I can now live out my mission without fear. Thank you for your gifts.- T.J. Johnson
I was directed to Sarah for the M.A.T. program from a friend who had been seeing Sarah for his back. He had made incredible progress and was very happy with the program. I have now been working with Sarah for the past 2 months and she is teaching me to rethink back pain! She is very knowledgeable and passionate about her job. I feel now that I am now able to work without the worry of injury and I am slowly getting back to a better exercise routine. Thanks Sarah!- Heather M.
