In early November, 2008, I was shocked when by chance I looked at my right elbow and saw that it had a swollen lump almost half the size of a tennis ball. I had no recollection of bumping it or otherwise causing damage to it and was really quite surprised because it was painless. That afternoon I visited my local doctor who explained that it was a bursa and that it could be surgically drained but it would more than likely re-occur. I asked what other alternatives there were and he replied that possibly a cortisone injection would help which I disregarded because it was mainly to reduce pain.
Like many others who have written to you, I used the internet to obtain as much information as I could regarding my condition and what treatments, if any, were available. Among many various items of information, I found at your website which absolutely blew my mind and actually found hard to believe despite all the various testimonials which totally supported the product. I subsequently contacted the suppliers by email to ascertain what the “landed” price would be to New Zealand and decided that it was more or less the same price as a visit to my doctor, SO, decided to “give it a go” and ordered the patches which were coming from Australia.
When the patches had not arrived in 15 days due to local postage problems, my doctor drained the bursa by needle but it re-filled within 3/4 days as he predicted. Shortly afterwards, the patches arrived and were immediately used with my scepticism. The morning after my 1st patch I could not believe my eyes as it was full and covered with similar coloured fluid as the doctor had removed by needle and the same thing happened on each of the next 3 days to the point that the bursa reduced to almost normal. I have not had to use another patch since then and my elbow is back to normal and has not refilled in the past 9 days so I think I can safely presume the problem has been fixed. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone with similar problems.
Real accounts by real people. Hear what they have to say!
Excruciating pain of bursitis
Please pass on my eternal thanks for this product. I would like to say how wonderful the patches are. I am proof that they work. I am 80 years old and had the excruciating pain of bursitis for 10 days. I used up three boxes of painkillers to no avail. Then in desperation looked on […]

Bursa on knee
Dear Friends at MediWise, I had what a nurse practioner at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London called ‘that huge bursa’ on my right knee as a direct result of falling from the top of a railway staircase when the city was inundated with a snowfall and resulting ice. I received your patches the day before […]

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 […]

Hi, I just reordered some of those wonderful patches. I also wanted to leave some feedback but couldn’t find anywhere on the site. I’ve used the patches once before for my shoulder bursitis. The most pain I have is at night, and it is very hard to sleep. So, I tried to patches, and to […]
Baker's cyst caused by torn miniscus
Hi, I have been using the patches for a bakers cyst caused by torn miniscus. The patch takes care of it but in comes back in about a week. Is it safe to use a patch a week for an indefinite amount of time? Thank you,
