What is a bursa sac?

A bursa sac is an extremely important compartment found through our body. It can be regarded like a flat balloon with a small portion of oil in the middle. Imagine now that these balloons lay between regions within the body which move against one another, (like inside joints) and you can see how this would permit minimum friction and wear on the bones and cartilage by permitting a smooth gliding effect to take place.

Of course the bursa isn’t really a balloon, actually the bursa sac is essentially made from a special kind of tissue called synovial tissue which is highly vascularized and permits the controlled movement of water and tiny molecules to and from the inside space of the bursa. The oily substance in the middle of the bursa sac which supplies the gliding effect is named Synovial fluid. A major element of healthy and normal synovial fluid is Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a very long chain molecule that gives synovial fluid its viscosity and gliding effect, but which isn’t readily capable of being transported or lost via movement across the synovial tissue.

Bursa on the elbow

My name is Garry Gracey; I am a former HANDBALL CHAMPION.   I banged my elbow while playing handball.  It became swollen after a few days and my family doctor recommended not to drain the bursa on the elbow but to have it take its natural healing course. “Being impatient” I googled and found OSMO […]

Elbow bursitis

GREAT PRODUCT! I HAVE TO ADMIT WHEN I FIRST APPLIED THE PATCH I WAS A BIT SKEPTICAL, BUT AFTER THE FIRST APPLICATION THE SWELLING IN MY ELBOW WAS GREATLY REDUCED! AFTER ABOUT SIX APPLICATIONS THE SWELLING WAS COMPLETELY GONE!! I HAVE BEEN FREE OF BURSITIS FOR SEVERAL MONTHS!

Baker's Cyst

I don’t know how to submit a testimonial, so I am just sending you a thank-you note. I had a baker’s cyst over a year ago, and with time (months), it diminished. Doctor said he did not recommend anything but the R.I.C.E. therapy (which helped some). Thought it was a one and done, but no. […]

Dear Toky I have used the 10 patches and I have felt significant improvement, albeit not a total cure at this point. But, the Radiologist did tell me my bursitis was as bad as the man who came off a motorbike and his is the worst case they have seen. Please note I have shared […]

Elbow bursitis

Dear Toky, This is to follow up on my last email. After the 7th patch, the swelling began to go down. I did have to use all 10 patches, but by that time the swelling was gone and my elbow was back to normal. So the patches did work and I am completely satisfied. I […]
