Is it good for shoulder Bursitis?
Been using Meloxicam with no results, in addition , it has been increasing my liver enzymes.
Been using ice and sore no more.
And it helps a little and some PT.
But still having a little discomfort while sleeping on my left side.
Didn't draw any Bursa liquid
Elbow Bursa sack broke 3 months ago and have huge liquid filled 'egg'. Over 10 days nightly use I hoped the Osmo Patchs would have sucked out the liquid. They did not help. Maybe waiting 3 months to draw the liquid is too late?
Not bad but not good either
This product is an anti inflammatory patch worn overnight. I found it to give some relief but it was not as good as the advertising and promotional messages. It may be worthwile for some users, I have a hip problem.

Too expensive for little results
The adhesive is very irritating. Made the bakers cyst softer and a tad smaller but cant handle the burn from the adhesive. High cost and not so greatly effective either.
A Bit Disappointed
I have a tear and arthritis in my upper arm and shoulder, I do believe these patches could probably help, the problem I find is that the powder pools down to the corner of the patch, so I am not getting an even spread over the area. I don't feel I would recommend these. I will continue to use them as I have 20 of them.
Decent pain relief from baker's cyst
I have had a baker's cyst that has made walking painful for a long time. I was recommended to use these patches. I feel that they have had a good impact and made walking easier, although I still have some pain. Thank you Osmo Patch!

Thank you for your inquiry.
Whilst our patches can be used on different types of hip bursitis, the results can vary from person to person as many individuals carry excess weight in this area. That said many people have seen very good results and the patches are also able to induce healing by increasing blood flow to the area.
Please remember that there may be underlying causes that continue to set off the condition, such as inflammatory disease (arthritis for example) and excessive or repetitive strain to the area just to name a few. Our Patches are a natural alternative treatment option to the current invasive treatment options that exist. They are intended to help the area heal by naturally draining the excess fluids as well as promoting blood flow to the area.
Assuming that there is no underlying inflammatory disease or scarring, it will then be up to the person being treated to adequately rest the area and to identify and if possible avoid the cause.
The patches are worn during the night and discarded in the morning (single use). Usually one patch is worn each night (approx 8-10 hrs) over the affected area, although more than one may be worn if required. That said the patches are not suitable for application in certain areas of the body, in particular you should be mindful that the patches should not be worn over or close to any genital area.
The patches should be used each consecutive night while you feel that you are improving. If you get to a level that you are not completely healed and your improvement has plateaued then you can consider stopping using the patches and keep the balance there in case there is a flare up.
It is impossible to answer 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.
I hope this information has been helpful and should you decide to try our patches I do hope that they will offer you some relief.
Wishing you and your family good health.
Thank you so much for getting back to me. I have bought the patches and have noticed a difference especially when I do repetitive bending over. Now I don't have the pain I had it's a mild discomfort. But just wondered about the groin part I have been putting the patch on my hip. But definitely have noticed a big difference with what I was going through before. I have noticed though that when I take the patch off it is still dry is that normal. I thought that if it was draining fluid out it would be damp or something.
