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.

Hip bursitis

Just to let you know, I had bursitis so bad in my hip I was missing work.  A co-worker had some of your patches and told me how well it worked for him.  In four days the pain in my hip was all gone.  I don’t know what Magic is in those, but thank you.

Baker's cyst

Hello, I have used your patches for my baker’s cyst. I started a while back, stopped, and found the cyst increased in size. I have now been using it again for 1 week and the discomfort of it is considerably reduced. The patches give such good relief.

Bakers Cyst on the knee

Hello Toky, 4 more patches to go, and I can report great improvement!  I can bend the knee, the lump in the back is so much smaller, (by half?) I think.  Not even thinking of a drain needle and cortisone shot at this point.  Your explanations are a little hard for me to follow medically, […]
