What Patients Say About Ophysio Clinic
Pain Relief & Mobility Starts With Chiropractic & Physiotherapy
My family doctor suggested physiotherapy for my continuous back and neck pain that also caused my migraines. She suggested Ophysio Clinic with the physiotherapist, Ms. Omnia Aleraky. Ms Aleraky was able to do a diagnostic of the problem, and she gave me a holistic view of my body. During the treatment, she used different techniques (Cupping, I.F., etc.) to reduce the pain and the number of migraines I had. She gave me simple exercises that allowed me to rectify my posture and be part of the treatment to feel better. Ms. Aleraky’s treatment was efficient. I was able to understand what is causing my pain. And after only two weeks, I started to feel the difference. Over the years, I tried a few physiotherapy treatments. I recommend Ms. Aleraky at Ophysio Clinic because simply I started feeling better in a short time. I was in the hands of a very knowledgeable and professional physiotherapist.

Thank you dear lady … our medical profession really needs professionals like you! Her name is Omnia and she is a real fairy!
I visited the clinic for back pain. I did acupuncture and shock wave therapy. She put me on a program of exercise and now I’m better.
