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 course 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.

Fluid collected around my knee due to arthritis

These have been a god send….I never actually ended up using them on a baker’s Cyst but rather on the fluid that had collected around my knee due to arthritis.  What an amazing product! How do I order more? Thank you,

Swollen elbow

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 Patches. They were AMAZING in such that after 5 applications of OSMO patches, the swelling on my elbow disappeared.

For a visual of the before and after, attached are the pictures.

Thank you very much,

Baker's cyst

Hello.

The patches arrived. Thank you very much.

I have used 3 and they are very good. They certainly draw the liquid away from the back of my knee.

Thanks very much

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.
