Who We Are

We are more than just a pain management clinic; we aim to remove the pain. A broad range of patients seek out our unique system of treatment, including those recovering from acute injury and those managing chronic conditions. We particularly welcome patients who have been failed by other treatments. Our goal is to help each patient overcome debilitating injury and escape the cycle of chronic pain, using a personalised treatment plan.Pain is caused by the accumulation of lactic acid in the soft tissue. Our unique techniques break this down, then we address the causes by examining the patient in detail. As well as investigating the cause of the pain, we look at their diet, lifestyle and posture to come up with a personalised plan to keep the pain away.


CTCLINIC.CO.UK was founded by Ammar Sawaf in 2006. At the clinic they use the COPA method to treat pain. Extensive research taught Ammar that he could break pain down into an accumulation of lactic acid in sometimes very small muscles. The clinic uses unique techniques to treat the pain.
