  • Everyone at AST is the best.  I know I am always getting the care I need and everyone ensures that I am consistently comfortable.  My back rarely aches anymore and when it does I know it will be fixed ASAP.

  • After a motor vehicle accident, it was the care and support from AST that got me back to a life of normalcy.  Looking forward to each and EVERY appointment is what got me through a very difficult time.  I recommend them to everyone I know.

  • AST is my go to clinic for any injuries or pain I am having. All of the practitioners are very thorough and work to get to the root of the problem and effectively treat it. The front desk team are all extremely friendly and helpful. The staff go above and beyond to maintain a clean and safe environment especially during Covid. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a professional healthcare team!

  • I love this place! It doesn't matter what I come in with, they are able to help me and my entire family. I have 2 children, ages 5 and 7, and Dr. Jennifer Teasdale is absolutely a delight to deal with, and both my kids are excited to see her. There hasn't been a problem they haven't been able to help with. Highly recommend this place!

  • I have been seeing Dr, Finan for Chiropractic Treatment and Michelle for Physiotherapy for over 10 years with AST. They are always kind and informative, they really care about your health and well-being and they do whatever it takes to get you there. Both are so patient and they never address your symptoms without some education to go along with why you might feel the way to do and what you can do to help the process.
