Hi guys , i had heel bursitis for 8 months , probably something that started long time ago doing double unders and box jumps made it worse , i used 3 packs (total 30 pads ) got some rest from jumping and running for 5-6 weeks and now im like new
No positive result for me.
Hip pain with bursitis for a long time. Applied patch. Was dark colour when I removed it next morning. Used 1 packet ,one daily. No improvement. I did send query about contents of patch. Just curious. They can't divulge details about content. Wish I had thought of this idea to make a handy profit!!!!

Nothing worked for the bursitis in my left leg except for this product. God send!!
This is an amazing temporary fix along with 50 leg raises everyday. It’s so easy to use and works a treat. Ensure you get the right spot where the pain is otherwise won’t work.
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.
Questions & Answers
Hi there, I have been using the patches for my shoulder bursitis. If the patch is discoloured, does this mean that my shoulder is improving because the pain is still very much present. I can't lift my arm at all, even after using the patches.
I used them for hip bursitis. Absolute waste of time and money. Sorry you are in pain. I am also and take co codamol pain relief tablets.

Thank you for your inquiry and I am sorry to hear about the pain you are experiencing.
Just to let you know that the patches can vary in appearance from very damp to hard and brittle with a few spots of dampness.
Please do not be concerned about the brown colour of the patches as this colour is normal due to the powder inside having a natural beige tint, however in many cases we find that as individuals improve the used patches turn from a dark brown to become lighter in colour as less fluid is absorbed, but this is not always the case. We advise that it is best to observe the physical improvement such as pain level and mobility rather than by visually looking at the patches.
It is impossible to know honestly how many patches you shall need as everyone's condition is different. Some of our customers find total relief from 1 or 2 boxes of 10 packs and we also do have several customers with chronic bursitis that use the patches for temporary pain relief on a need to basis as they have underlying conditions that continue to cause flare-ups’.
Also please be aware that it is important to rest the arm as much as possible. Do not do any exercises or activities that my irritate. This includes avoiding any massaging or manipulation of the shoulder as this will likely also irritate the condition. It is also important to avoid sleeping on the side of your shoulder bursitis. If you have a recliner at home a few nights sleep in the recliner can be very helpful.
You can also contact our customer care team directly at email@example.com if you have any further questions.
I hope this information has been helpful and that our patches will offer you some relief.
Wishing you and your family good health.
