Who We Are

We are a chronic pain specialist, with a high success rate presented in 5 starts Google review we would like to think we have the potential to help you improve any form of musculoskeletal pain. The techniques used by our chronic pain practitioners which have been developed over 20 years of working with patients, with long-standing illnesses or complicated cases of pain in the muscles have allowed us to hone our skills and develop a new system and techniques to help patients this is called COPA Therapy and Sawaf’s technique. Whether your pain is acute or COPA therapy can offer you a renewed outlook on your life which will equate to a pain-free life.

This unique system has been developed by our Head Practitioner Ammar Sawaf. COPA Therapy focuses on the source of the pain; muscle stiffness regardless of the diagnosis you have been given (bulged disc, herniated disc, meniscus, sciatica, headache, rotator cuff tear, sports injuries, untreatable conditions…..) not at any point we are dismissing these diagnoses instead we don’t think this is what causes the pain and we have a different approach to treat the pain.

In addition, Ammar has developed his own technique called Sawaf’s technique to break the muscle stiffness by stimulating and manipulating the muscle tissue fibers allowing the blood vessels to flow naturally again. Once the full treatment plan is followed a patient will see significant improvements. During the treatment phase life, style, and ergonomic factors are discussed which the patient is advised to implement in their lifestyle to ensure that there is no regression.

Ammar Sawaf has worked for over 2 decades with experts in the field of Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, and Acupuncture to develop COPA Therapy and offer a new way to treat pain; COPA Therapy’s whole philosophy is to eliminate pain from its root cause, once and for all.

Additionally, here at the CT Clinic, we have started using a muscle diagnostics machine Myoton which allows us to make an objective, accurate and non-invasive assessment of muscle tone and stiffness this diagnostic tool is fast and efficient it measures a unique set of parameters including tone and elasticity. Myoton is a trailblazing piece of kit which is used by several hundred universities and is currently being used by NASA. Myoton helps us with the treatment of each patient as it gives us a unique set of data which allows us more detailed information to carry out a better treatment plan.
