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 painful at times. I’ve been to see a specialist and checked into treatments myself and they are all invasive and very painful sounding. So when I came across your website, I though what the heck, I should give it a try.
Last night I decided to give it a whirl. I read the instructions and was able to follow most of them. I did have them on for about 10 hours most of which I was sleeping. In the morning when I took them off I was amazed. The patches were full of fluid (yech) but the cyst had drained. As far as I can tell, without a technical assistance, they felt like they were completely empty.
I realize because of the nature of my problem the cyst will probably fill up again. I’ll let you know how long that takes and how my knees and legs feel now that the pressure is gone.
Thank you very much, like I said, I was amazed at well they worked. I’ll keep in touch.

Bursitis in my Elbow
Attention Toky, Customer care. Hi Toky, Just to say we’ve ordered 20 more patches as the first lot really improved the Bursitis in my Elbow. It reduced the pain mainly, but although it seems full of fluid in the mornings the swelling has not reduced greatly. Mind you it’s quite an art fitting them firmly […]
I used the patch for 3 days and I do a difference in the size of the cyst, how many days in a row can the patch be used? Any restrictions?

Hello, My name is Garry Gracey; I am a former HANDBALL CHAMPION. I banged my elbow while playing handball. It became swollen after a few days and my family doctor recommended not to drain the bursa on the elbow but to have it take its natural healing course. “Being impatient” I googled and found OSMO […]

On applying your patch to my elbow for three days the bursitis disappeared. Simply amazing. My elbow and shoulder were both injured at the same time. They were attended to by a highly respected orthopaedic physician. After treatment, my shoulder fully recovered but the bursitis continued in full bloom. My doctor did not suggest draining […]

I have just started using OSMO patches on my hip and have had some significant relief after only two nights of use. I was wondering if they could also work on a large ganglion on a wrist? Sincerely,
