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!
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,

Dear Toky, Some time ago I corresponded with you and was duly sent 10 patches to try for bursitis of the knee. As I am a Carmelite Nun, our life is dedicated to prayer so kneeling is rather important!! I kept off the knee for a long time before trying the patches and found it […]

Received patches on 10 day (Nov.8). Thanks. Patches have been positive results for my Barkers Cyst. Will probably order more patches latter on to keep my knee in shape. Regards
Thanks again. I found the first batch really worked!! You have a wonderful product

Elbow swollen up to the size of a golf ball
Dear Toky: I was diagnosed with severe bursitis in my left elbow in mid February. I saw an orthopaedist in March who attempted to aspirate my bursa and also injected cortisone in the bursa. This treatment had absolutely no effect. A couple of weeks later the same doctor successfully aspirated over 30 cc’s of fluid […]

Thank you. Just to let you know, you’re product is supreme! Thank you so much. I’d been suffering with bursitis on my elbow for months, but now it’s totally healed in just two applications.

Bakers Cyst on the knee
I hurt my knee quite severely when out bushwalking in the Mt Mitchell National Park a distance of approximately 5.0 kilometres up total distance almost 11k. I hadn’t been doing much strenuous walking and on the way down I got a nasty pain in my knee. My doctor told me I had a Bakers Cyst […]
