Who We Are
Manchester Physiotherapy and COPA Therapy Clinic
CTCLINIC.CO.UK was founded by Ammar Sawaf in 2006. At the clinic, COPA Therapy is successfully used 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 pain.
We have dealt with complicated cases of pain for over 12 years.

We are now confident at treating a variety of pains from back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, neck pain and much more. We are not fazed by challenging symptoms and will work to put all our patients at ease as we begin treatment.
Often, our patients tell us they didn’t think anyone could cure their excruciating pain after so many years.
I've suffered long term neck and shoulder pain problems for many years but just recently it has become much worse, restricting movement so much that driving was proving a challenge. My GP hadn't taken me seriously so I put up with it. After 10 minutes of attention from Ammar, the movement in my neck returned and now days later, I am still enjoying freedom of movement - I can actually turn my head to the right without having to move my whole body. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending CT Clinic - don't put up with pain, when a solution might only be a few minutes away!Marleywarley59
Five stars! Was looking for a relaxing massage to relieve back muscle tension from work (as I thought so) but booked a consultation as well just to see if there was anything else. To my surprise, just by having a quick examination, the therapist told me it was mostly because of my sleeping posture. The session was professional, insightful and comfortable. Definitely recommend.Vicky B
After suffering with severe neck pain for a long period of time, with countless doctors and physio appointments that had no effect. I visited the CT Clinic recommended by a friend. After a thorough consultation and two treatments, the effects are amazing and I am nearly pain-free. Excellent service and would highly recommend.Nicky
Highly recommended, had severe back pain for years tried everything but 6/7 sessions with Ammar and my back is 95 percent better, just my stomach to deal with now and I’m sure he will solve that in no time! Cheers mate 💙Dale Gorton
I had specific injuries due to football and have been treated here for a few sessions. My body feels much stronger and flexible. I would rate the Physio treatment here 5* and recommend friends and family. Plenty of parking easy booking service. Easily the best Physio I have attended out of many.Syed Rahman
Life before CT Clinic had an addition of variable but constant pain in my upper back and shoulders. From acute shocks too days of numb ache. It affected my mood without me knowing. The worse it got the quicker it got worse. I could no longer satisfy my addiction to sports. All were on hold. Any physical training was on hold. My sleep was at 50% efficiency which affected everything. Enough was enough and I found this Clinic. Now I’ve had three sessions and it has completely changed. I am in a deep sleep for the first time in 6 months. I feel rested. I am now able to enjoy my sports again. I know that two more sessions and the pain will be a thing of the past. Cannot recommend enoughThomas Faulkner

Very experienced Very professional Very caring Very knowledgeable He quickly identifies the problem and gives you an honest diagnosis then goes on to fix the problem. Hard to find a better man for this type of work . Many of my boxers use Ammar .Omar Ali
Absolutely brilliant. I carry a lot of tension in my upper back and shoulders, and have for years. After a quick but thorough chat Ammar knew where to locate and work out the pains. What once was unbe arable is now back in full use in my Deltoid and pectoral muscle. I went a second time just yesterday, and he again pinpointed exactly my issue which seemed to originate in my neck and below my shoulders, and though painful, his wit, charm and extensive knowledge made it all the worthwhile. 10/10 would recommend, thank you!Toria Rees
I have been having neck, back and shoulder problems for a while. It became unbearable when I couldn't move my neck. Ammar Ctclinic came highly recommended and now I'm passing this on!! After a few sessions I am completely pain free. I've been to other people for massages and treatment but none have been effective as this gent Ammar. I can't recommend him enough 👍⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐👍Hacker 123
Over the last few years I have struggled to walk longer than a few hundred metres without having to stop. This problem has been slowly getting worse to a point where I thought I'd caused long term damage. I've been to see loads of different physios with little or no results. Six weeks ago someone put me in touch with Ammar Ctclinic. For the first time in a very long time, I am pain free, I can have good quality sleep and I'm finally getting my quality of life back. Thank you so much for all your advice and hard work. By far the most effective and knowledgeable person I have been to see and I would highly recommend Ammar to anyone with any type of injury 👍Dave Hetherington
Anyone who knows me will know that for as long as I can remember I have suffered with acute pain, stiffness and a lack of flexibility in my lower back. Ammar Ctclinic was recommended to me by a friend and I have never looked back (excuse the pun). Not only has the stiffness gone but I am now virtually pain free and my flexibility has massively improved. I just want to say thank you Ammar for sorting my back out when no one else could and giving me a new lease of life as I no longer feel like a 80 year old woman 😊Dannielle Strang
Ammar’s passion is treating people suffering pain. His greatest satisfaction is treating patients who have been unable to get relief from other specialists. Starting from the age of 17, when a back injury ended his promising professional footballer career, he spent eleven years studying and developing the techniques he now uses. In 2006 he founded CTClinic, treating patients using the COPA methodology.
