I fell 1.5 metres onto the road, landing on my patella. The pain was severe, and after two weeks on crutches I was left with a fluid-filled bursa the size of half a golf-ball on my knee. I already had a swelling just below my kneecap for five years, and another specialist had thought this was probably a lipoma, or benign fatty tumour. An orthopaedic specialist at A&E told me it wasn’t a good idea to drain the fluid from the bursa due to the possibility of infection, and that the ‘lipoma’ could only be removed surgically.
I’ve used 16 of your patches so far, in conjunction with acupuncture. The bursa began to shrink from the first patch, and is now almost gone. I’ve been able to return to my Taiji classes. What is more surprising is that the ‘lipoma’ also has almost vanished: probably this ‘lipoma’ was in fact another bursitis, and not a lipoma at all.
So, no invasive needle drainage for me, no surgery, and I’m recovering fast. I’ve ordered another packet of OSMO patches, just to finish the job: I am very impressed.
Real accounts by real people. Hear what they have to say!
Danniel Jacques has made the world a better place for those of us that end up with too much synovial fluid – thank you very much!!! I had my first Bakers Cyst about 10 years ago and unfortunately the left over patches are a bit past it to treat the one I developed Tuesday night […]
Baker's cyst caused by torn miniscus
Hi, I have been using the patches for a bakers cyst caused by torn miniscus. The patch takes care of it but in comes back in about a week. Is it safe to use a patch a week for an indefinite amount of time? Thank you,

I have been suffering from bursitis in my right hip since last August. I saw your website & ordered 20 patches. I used a patch for 3 nights and didn’t notice much difference & there was just a slight amount of fluid in the patches each night. Last night I moved the patch a little […]

I have used the Osmo patch in the past for my bakers cyst. I was very successful with it. I have referred it to others.

Hi, I just reordered some of those wonderful patches. I also wanted to leave some feedback but couldn’t find anywhere on the site. I’ve used the patches once before for my shoulder bursitis. The most pain I have is at night, and it is very hard to sleep. So, I tried to patches, and to […]
I have found these patches to be fantastic giving me huge relief. Regards
Hello Jasmine, I just wanted to say that my husband has been using the patches for a few days now and they have definitely made a difference to his knee, I have brought some more from one of your UK stockists, The Health Workshop, and they, like you, could not have been more helpful. Thank […]
