Osmo patch works for me
I've had inferior calcaneal bursitis for a couple of months, seeing physio and GP, who was talking about steroid injection. I saw Osmo Patch online and my chemist stocks it. He'd had good feedback about the patches. The first night brought slight relief. Second night reduced swelling markedly and less pain. Third night - swelling is even less and so is pain. I will keep on with the patches until the bursitis disappears. The patches have a strange odour, but it's ok. They stay on if you apply them just before bed. For me, they've been really great. So happy to be walking without pain.

First Time Use
My friend found a youtube link and sent it to me for info after a year of pain that has affected my work, my sleep, my life. I had tried icing, heat, red lazer, physio, I take every supplement known to man and the bursitis in my shoulder is becoming worse.
The patch was easy to apply by following the instructions. It smells a bit like bbq ribs, which made me and my hubby giggle. I did experience some sever pain during the night, which woke me up multiple times but that is normal for me. I told myself to remember there is intense swelling in t...here and lots of damaged nerves, tendons, and muscles. Pain is to be expected if things move around, and after reading the other reviews- I will make sure I don't sleep on it (which I did, thinking it would help draw more out) or have pressure on it at all next time. I took the patch off in the morning and instantly noticed my shoulder felt kind of numb, and the usual morning shooting pain was not there. It still aches a little, but I do feel a lot better than any other morning. I am excited to give it another go and see what happens!
This patch is amazing!
I am a nurse and was recently diagnosed with shoulder bursitis. I was unable to move or raise my R arm and in severe pain for 7-8 weeks. I wasnt sleeping due to the pain and it was taking a toll on me physically and emotionally. I had a cortisone injection and was ill for a week due to side effects and only got 2 days pain relief. While doing some research I came across Osmopatch. I was willing to try just about anything at this stage for pain relief. So I purchased a packet. I must say I was still very much a sceptic when I applied the patch...the first night.. But within 5 mins the pain was greatly reduced... I thought..They can't possibly work that quickly! I continued to use them for about a fortnight and my shoulder is almost back to normal. Even my physiotherapist is surprised at the progress and the return of ROM in my arm. I can thoroughly recommend Osmopatch.

I used this patch on my teenagers as they were suffering from muscle pain. The skin was clean and dry but the patch doesn't stay on very long. I put it on them just before they go to bed but by the middle of the night it peels off. We've used 3 patches and everytime it peels off.
A Godsend !
I have osteoarthritis in all my joints but my knees are the worst. I also have bursitis in my left hip. Following months of pain and discomfort and trying everything I could lay my hands on, I came across Osmo Patch through extensive research on hip bursitis. It is expensive admittedly, about £5 per patch but oh so worth it. Its a little stinky but nothing off putting. So far I've used on my hip and both knees and every morning I've gotten up pain free and moving freely. I've already recommended it to family and friends who would benefit. For...me it's an absolute godsend. I don't plan to use it every night due to the cost but I will use it for a few nights in a row to make a difference and do this until I've worked out how to best use it for me. Personally and for customer service purposes, I think it should be free p&p, this surprisingly does make a difference between buying and not for some people. All in all i would highly recommend.

Useless and forget about getting a refund as they advertise.. AVOID
I bought my first pack from the pharmacist and also a sling to support my shoulder bursitus to prevent aggravation of the inflamed bursa. Nothing.. but all for giving something a second chance, I bought 2 more boxes on the Internet and again used according to instructions. in the final few days, used them during the day as well. Nothing!
I then sent them an email, giving them the entire story and included my receipts. Have heard nothing!!
Helped hip pain.
I had 2 falls in 4 days - 1 on concrete & 1 on hard soil in the garden. I fell onto my hip which I had surgery on 3 months prior to the first fall & have had a lot of pain since. Used Osmo Patch last night and feel more comfortable this morning. My only grumble is that the powder is very hard to keep flat when attaching it to your body - it did gravitate to the lower part of the patch. It's a pity the scientists can't come up with a different formula for the patch contents - i.e, a gel type substance that stays where it should. My patch was black this morning.
increased pain with hip bursitis
I also tried this product on my hip and it increased the pain. Unfortunately I had just had a cortisone injection, so I have no idea if the pain was caused by the patch or the injection or interaction of both. I emailed the company for more information and in their response they recommended waiting for at least 7 days after a cortisone injections. Also:
Stop all exercise (including stretching) on the affected joint.
Do not lift anything heavy
Do not massage or probe the affected joint
Avoid placing pressure on the area (do not sleep on that...
OMG!!! These are now a part of my life...
I have a bursitis in my left hip.. And after sleeping 1 to 2 hrs a night I had to do something. No other pain relief worked.. I put one on my hip the first night and it helped. But I knew it would take more than one night for them to work.. So after a week and no pain my wife suggested I put it on the sole of my foot... WELL.... I haven’t looked back.. would recommend these to anyone that could benefit...
Osmo delivered me a good night's sleep
I had the worst pain in my knee - I couldn't sleep - it just ached and ached. A friend said I must have Bursitis and as I had never heard of Bursitis I came home and "googled" it and found the magic Osmo Patches. I found a chemist and bought my first packet. I used a patch every night for 10 nights and the pain has never returned to that knee. I have asked my local chemist to stock Osmo Patches and told the Chemist how good they were and have recommended them to all my friends. I even carry the little leaflet in my bag to give them to peop...le. Now I have that awful Plantar Fasciitis in my other knee and foot and I get relief with my Osmo Patches. I cannot praise them enough and when I go to my chemist and he is out of stock (because he said they are walking out the door) I ask him if he has ordered more. Thank you OSMO
Osmo Patch - useless or a bad batch?
I bought a 10 patch box at the pharmacy, the pharmacist said he had heard good reviews from customers. I followed the instructions to a T, applied patch to shoulder bursitis in slightly different positions each night. Also bought a sling to immobilise the shoulder joint. Absolutely no change after 10 days. I will try another packet to give it a chance, but after that will request a complete refund.
I have bursitis in my shoulder. But I think I have in my knees and legs too. I put patch on my shoulder first night, when I woke through the night I had no pain, my legs weren’t cramped. When I woke in the morning I felt good I took of patch off didn't have much but a little dirty make size of a 5 cent coin... next night I didn’t put on woke sore. Next night I put on woke up no cramps. up getting ready for work @ 4am took off patch and oh my goodness the patch was soaking wet... so they work... the pain is still there through out the day but it is helping me
Relief at last
I used the patch for the first time last night as I have bursitis in my shoulder what a great product first time I slept through without pain usually I wake up stiff and sore not today I feel almost like my old self again I’m not saying It has cured my condition it’s just wonderful to wake and feel refreshed. I read many reviews some were good some were bad and I thought what have I got to lose I’ll try it best relief I’ve had in a very long time. I have tried everything doctors chiropractor physio tablets my doctor had given me for the pain no results at all I highly recommend this product. Thank you Osmo
I used the OSMO patch for a golf ball sized bursa on my knee. Applied it before I went to bed, and, seriously, the bursa was reduced by more than half by the next morning. Used another OSMO patch the next night, and the bursa was completely reduced by morning. Highly recommend.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU
Diagnosed with large Baker’s Cyst July 2018 after fall. Due to already damaged leg surgery or having cyst drained was not recommended for me. Some relief from an excellent Acupuncturist but weekly visits expensive which I knew I would not be able to keep up. Pain and difficulty with walking started to impact with depression. Whilst on computer on 18 September found Osmo Patch site and although unsure product would work as well as written in many recommendations I was desperate to try anything that might alleviate my pain. Immediately order...ed on line and then noticed stockist’s listing, Found chemist in Forster, NSW (close to me), drove there immediately and used first patch that night. Monday morning could not believe the relief. Followed with patch Monday and last night and the RESULT IS UNBELIEVABLE. 3 DAYS WITHOUT SEVERE PAIN and terrible discomfort is decreasing each day. Ordered Sunday, delivered am today - great service to a regional area. Will take pack to my GP next week for his info. Writing this to help anyone else who might be, or has, given up.
I have used a small box and then one large box. Bakers cyst was almost gone then started to come back a bit. The patch will not remain dry if you either dampen the skin, or as I did, wet your finger tips and then dampen the packet carefully once its on the adhesive, then attach to cyst area. Had to wrap with a towel also since it drained so much fluid each night. Have to order more.
Just wanted to say thank you as was doubtful it would work but after the first night my hip pain from my bursitis was almost gone and after the second night it was totally gone. I could not sleep on my left side at all at night and when the pain was bad I was li mping. Now I don't ever give it a thought. Thanks again...

If I get the relief I hope for in my hip, will I be able to resume about 30 minutes
