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.

Bursa in elbow

Dear Toky: My patches arrived on Feb. 10th. I have now used 9 of the patches, wearing one sometimes during the day. I have noticed significant results, although there is still some swelling in the bursa in my left elbow.

Fluid on knees

We have purchased your patches for application on my husband’s knee.  It certainly drained some fluid from his knees, giving some relief after one application.

Elbow Bursitis

The Osmo patch worked great for my wife’s elbow bursitis, I’ve placed another order through the website, a work colleague was just diagnosed with hip bursitis and I’ve recommended Osmo patch, fantastic product.

Bakers cyst on the knee

I got the patches yesterday evening. I have had five knee operations on my right knee and have arthritis. I also have a bakers cyst on the back of my knee and off to the front. I tried it last night and I was surprised at the results and it actually took away some of the swelling. I work out every other day and I think these will help.

Thanks

Baker's cyst

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 […]

Joint Pain

These are honestly the best pain patches of them all. I have tried 4 other brands before finding the OSMO Patch. They don’t get rid of the pain, but they certainly make things bearable.
