Class IV Laser Therapy
Innovative and non-invasive treatment using first-class technology
Class IV Laser Therapy for Effective Pain Management
Class IV Laser Therapy is a new and innovative treatment option for chronic pain. It is a non-invasive, drug-free procedure that uses laser energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. The result is relief from pain, improved function, and a restored quality of life.
At The Sussex Osteopaths, we offer laser therapy using our Class IV Therapeutic Laser. Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process called photobiomodulation. In short, light from the laser enters the tissues and stimulates a healing cascade within the tissues. This treatment is FDA approved and provides patients with a non-invasive, non-pharmacological alternative for pain relief.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does Laser Therapy do?
Laser therapy stimulates the body’s cells to produce a substance called ATP. ATP provides the cells with the energy needed to repair themselves. This is how Lasers can speed up healing times. It also increases circulation and reduces inflammation in the area treated, resulting in effective pain reduction.
Are there any side effects of Laser Therapy?
The only potential harmful side effect of Laser Therapy is an injury to the eye if the laser is shone into the eye. This is why certified, and protective eyewear is always required during treatments using the Class IV Laser.
Who can have Laser therapy?
Laser Therapy is suitable for the majority of patients. Whether you have an acute sports injury like a hamstring strain, a chronic pain condition like fibromyalgia or arthritic changes to the joints, a Laser will help to reduce inflammation and pain levels in the areas treated. Laser therapy is also a suitable treatment option for pregnant women.
What makes the Class IV laser different?
Cass IV lasers are more advanced than Class 3B lasers. Class IV is far more powerful than alternative ‘cold lasers’ or Class 3B lasers. A treatment to the lower back taking roughly 10 minutes with the Class IV laser would need 200 minutes with a Class 3B laser to produce the same effect.
How much will Laser therapy cost me?
As with all of our treatments, we aim to keep the costs as affordable as possible. This is why, unlike many other clinics, we include the cost of Laser Therapy within our osteopathy appointments. There is no additional charge. It can be beneficial for some conditions to have a course in Laser Therapy in fairly short succession. As we do not ‘block book’ courses of osteopathy appointments, we have come up with a couple of packages to cover any additional Laser Therapy treatments you may need.
