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.

Baker's cyst on both knees

I have been meaning to write you for some time now and tell you how great the OSMO patches have worked for me.

I have had Baker’s cysts over the past 4 years on both knees. My Orthopedic Specialist drained them numerous times, plus gave me cortisone shots. Researching the topic one day, I discovered your website and hesitantly ordered the patches… they work amazingly. There is such a difference when I wake up in the morning.

The fluid is drawn out and mobility is greatly improved. I will probably need surgery one day to repair torn cartilage in my knees, but these are greatly helping me with the swelling/fluid buildup like nothing else has before.

Thank you for developing such a wonderful product and for the prompt and efficient service. They are really helping me.

Baker's cyst

Hi Toky, how are you? I ordered the patch because I have a meniscus tear on my knees which allows fluid to build into a baker’s cyst. The cyst I have on my right knee is larger than the left. So bending my knees is very uncomfortable because of the pressure and can be very […]

Shoulder Bursitis

I had a sudden case of Shoulder Bursitis, in fact, the Orthopaedic Surgeon said it was the most severe and immediate he had seen in years. He gave cortisone shot and Rx Narcotics that barely cut the pain. No sleep as pain worse at night. In my desperation for relief I searched the internet to […]

Bakers Cyst on the knee

I hurt my knee quite severely when out bushwalking in the Mt Mitchell National Park. I hadn’t been doing much strenuous walking and on the way down I got a nasty pain in my knee.

My doctor told me I had a Bakers Cyst on the knee. I found your website and the OSMO Patch sounded like a good idea and I ordered it. It arrived within seven days of placing the order and it relieved the pain overnight. I find if I use the patches for three nights (until it’s dry) I have no pain for several weeks.

I like it because it’s a natural non-invasive treatment and above all it works. I don’t like taking pills and anti-inflammatory medication and prefer natural methods over drugs.

Bursitis in the knee

Hi,

I ordered these patches for my son who has terrible bursitis in his knee. He owns a carpet installing business, and the constant kicking has really damaged his knee.

He took meds, had a steroid shot, nothing worked. The doctor told him he needed surgery. I had found your patches online, and they have worked for him.

Thanks so much, Sincerely

Baker's cyst

Dear Sir or Madam: I purchased the OSMO patch several weeks ago and just started using them 4 days ago for my Bakers Cyst behind my knee.  I must admit I was very skeptical but I have noticed a change and less swelling in the area behind my knee.   Thank you
