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.

I have been suffering from bursitis in my right hip since last August.  I saw your website & ordered 20 patches.  I used a patch for 3 nights and didn’t notice much difference & there was just a slight amount of fluid in the patches each night. Last night I moved the patch a little […]

I had a sac of fluid to the upper-right of my knee. Quite large. Initially I had pulled my calf muscle and without realizing the extent of the pull, I continued to pursue my daily routine which consisted of morning workouts at the gym including “spin” class.  Needless to say, I aggravated the whole situation.

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!

Thank you very much.  I used the patches from a previous order for 10 days and they helped a lot. I am hoping that by continuing to use them, my condition with bursitis will be completely cleared up. I will let you know the results.
