What is a bursa sac?

A bursa sac is an extremely important compartment found through our body. It can be regarded like a flat balloon with a small portion of oil in the middle. Imagine now that these balloons lay between regions within the body which move against one another, (like inside joints) and you can see how this would permit minimum friction and wear on the bones and cartilage by permitting a smooth gliding effect to take place.

Of c0use the bursa isn’t really a balloon, actually the bursa sac is essentially made from a special kind of tissue called synovial tissue which is highly vascularised and permits the controlled movement of water and tiny molecules to and from the inside space of the bursa. The oily substance in the middle of the bursa sac which supplies the gliding effect is named Synovial fluid. A major element of healthy and normal synovial fluid is Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a very long chain molecule that gives synovial fluid its viscosity and gliding effect, but which isn’t readily capable of being transported or lost via movement across the synovial tissue.

Hi Just a quick note that I feel I needed to write about the OSMO Patches. In September I tripped over while running and fell on my knee which left me with a fractured bone at the back of my knee which in turn ruptured my cruciate ligament. Although back on track now after various […]

General Bursitis

To Toky, Customer care, I wanted to inform you that I’ve ordered more patches. My partner and I were totally amazed by this product. We have seen a significant difference in the size of his bursitis. It’s getting smaller after every use, and we both feel that having extra would be beneficial. It’s a shame […]

Ankle and hips (trochanter bursitis)

Thank you very much. I have used the patches on three areas with amazing results. One was on my ankle…12 hours later the pain was completely resolved. The other two spots were on my hips for greater trochanter bursitis. One hip had been injected with cortisone and local anaesthetic on Monday. The patch applied on […]

Baker's cyst

Hello Danniel, Thank you for your prompt reply.

I started using the patches about 10 days ago, and the amount of improvement is unbelievable. The lump was rock hard, and I could not bend the knee, nor straighten the leg. Even though there is still some swelling, the knee feels almost normal. I have run out of the patches, so will restart as soon as I receive the new batch…hopefully it will all go away. Thank you for your help, and good luck…
