I have an arthritic knee from playing American football and having an operation when I was 18. Going to a doctor to have it drained would cost me well over $220. Even a smaller amount of fluid in the front and back of the knee will throw it out of line and I know that I will need to get this knee replaced sometime into the near future. Since the time span that these new knees lasts is put at around 15 years, and you can only do this one time, it is in my best interest to find a way to prolong the knee replacement and save the costly doctor visits.
I tried the OSMO Patch about a 1-2 years ago, thinking it may be a gimmick, and is was no gimmick because it works. The pressure on my knee is lessened by morning and I can move around a lot better. I’m health conscious, watch what I eat, go to the gym 3-4 times a week and of course I work. It is important to be open to alternatives to the traditional doctor visit and the “give me a pill” attitude that most of the public has because we, as individuals, have to realize that we, not someone else, are the most interested in our own health.
