Knee Bursitis Treatment
Are you suffering from swelling and pain in the knee due to bursitis in the knee? Is this pain beginning to affect your work, lifestyle or sleep? Are you wishing to avoid anti-inflammatory medication, painful steroid injections or invasive surgery?
Below we shall discuss the most common causes of bursitis in the knee and look at how the OSMO Patch (which is drug free and non-invasive) can be used together with proper rest to help reduce the inflammation, swelling and the associated pain.
What is Knee Bursitis?
Within and about the knee lie several small cushion like structures called bursas. These bursas allow different tissue types within the knee (such as bones, muscles & tendons) to move smoothly across each other which reduces friction and irritation from occurring in the knee.
When one of these bursas becomes inflamed due to injury they will fill with fluid causing pain and swelling in the knee. This condition is called bursitis in the knee.
There are four main areas of the knee where bursitis will occur and are classified by the region of the knee they affect, these are;
Bursitis in the knee is normally a result of trauma from an impact injury, overuse through work or sports or age related wear and tear. Another less recognized cause can be due to post operative irritation in the knee. There are also certain jobs where individuals may be more susceptible to developing bursitis in the knee as they require long periods where kneeling on hard surfaces is required. These jobs may include carpenters, plumbers, gardeners and cleaners. In fact prepatellar bursitis is also known as housemaid’s knee.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms and signs may include;
- A visible lump on the knee
- Mild to extreme knee pain
- Knee pain at nights while you sleep,
- Pain in the knee when walking or running,
- Localized swelling and tenderness
- Possible knee pain at rest.
Bursitis can occur equally in either knee and may initially present as either right knee pain or left knee pain.
Treatment may begin with ice and rest in the first 24-48 hours of noticing knee pain or swelling. While this will hopefully minimize the degree of swelling which can then help expedite the recovery time, it is usually not enough to fully resolve knee bursitis pain and swelling.
Due to the minimal advancements in treating knee bursitis over the last decade your doctor will normally suggest one of the following treatments, assuming there is no infection present,
- Anti-inflammatory medication,
- Injection with cortisone steroid,
- Aspiration of excess fluid using a syringe (which can be extremely painful) or
- Even surgery may be suggested in extreme cases.
However if you are suffering from pain and prefer to try a natural treatment then the OSMO Patch is ideal considering that some of the treatments listed above may just not be suitable for certain people. There could be several reasons for this including;
- Having already used one or more of these treatments with little to no relief, or
- Some individuals may not be suitable candidates for these types of treatments due to their age or a pre-existing medical condition.
Fortunately, the OSMO Patch now offers an Intelligent Natural Alternative!
As the OSMO Patch has been especially designed to draw fluid from the body and to decrease swelling and pain in conditions such as knee bursitis, they are in fact the ideal non-invasive treatment for reducing pain and swelling in conditions involving knee inflammation.
All you do is simply place the OSMO Patch over the area of swelling or pain on the knee just before going to bed. The OSMO Patch can then begin to go to work while you sleep… removing fluid and also stimulating blood flow throughout the night. Then when you get up in the morning the used patch is then removed and discarded.
