How to treat a Baker’s Cyst?

A Baker’s Cyst is a type of soft tissue injury.

Soft tissue injuries are best treated with rest & ice during the first 24-72 hours.

This should help minimize the initial amount of inflammation & swelling.

Whilst rest and ice initially reduce pain and inflammation behind the knee… it is often not enough to resolve the injury.

Over time the pain behind the knee may continue to worsen… leading to further swelling and increased discomfort and pain.

There has been very little advancement when it comes to Baker’s Cyst treatments.

Most doctors will suggest anti-inflammatory drugs.

While these can indeed be helpful, they are often not enough to fully resolve the injury.

Also long term use of some anti-inflammatory drugs should be avoided as they can lead to ulceration and bleeding.

In addition your doctor may recommend a steroid cortisone injection to hopefully reduce the pain and swelling.

This can be helpful for some individuals, however most will only experience short term relief from a cortisone injection.

Furthermore, not only can the procedure be painful, there are also risks involved.

These include the risk of infection, as well as possible long term damage of tendons and articular cartilage with over use of cortisone.

If there is a noticeable swelling, some doctors may also suggest draining the fluid with a syringe. This is also known as aspiration.

Unfortunately… not only is this uncomfortable, but most people will find that the fluid returns within a few days.

In extreme cases a doctor may even recommend surgery.

For many people these treatments will just not be an option.

Possibly they have already tried one of them with little to no benefit or they may not be suitable for such treatments due to age or pre-existing medical conditions.

Some people may simply prefer to investigate a natural treatment option when dealing with their health.

The OSMO Patch now offers a natural alternative to reduce inflammation, swelling and associated pain due to Baker’s Cyst.
