Is Exercise good for a Baker’s Cyst?

Swelling at the back of the knee is often a sign of a Baker’s Cyst.

A baker’s cyst will often cause pain and discomfort, resulting in a restriction of the activities that you would have previously been able to do.

Often people are incorrectly advised to start an exercise regime to strengthen the area in the hope to relieve the symptoms.

Exercising with a Baker’s Cyst is not recommended. Unfortunately, exercise only places more stress on the injury, further aggravating the condition.

It is however important to move around normally and not to be bedridden. Listen to your body and ease off from any activity that is causing pain or places stress on the knees.

This includes activities that require kneeling, such as gardening.

Avoid any type of repetitive stress whenever possible. Even light repetitive movements if done continually over a period of time will cause irritation.

Ongoing irritation due to exercise or other repetitive stress may lead to a chronic Baker’s Cyst and the possible formation of fibrous scar tissue.

The bottom line… if you enjoy exercise, sports or participate in any physical activity, we suggest that you take a break from these activities until the condition resolves.

Once the Baker’s Cyst has resolved it may be helpful to rebuild any lost muscle mass and strength. If there is muscle loss after the condition resolves, then guidance from a qualified physiotherapist may be helpful.

For essential advice to avoid further injury and great tips on how to naturally reduce swelling & pain due to a baker’s cyst, be sure to explore our website as well as the rest of this video series.

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.

Hi there!

I’ve been wanting to write you about your product, OSMO Patches.

I have a baker’s cyst behind my knee that I’ve had aspirated three times at great expense. After the third time of aspiration, the doctor injected steroids, stating that I most likely wouldn’t ever have another problem. Well, my cyst began to return in about 3 days and was soon as large as it had been before my procedure. Tears.

Long story short, I went online and found your product, OSMO Patches. I was so excited to try it. The first night nothing really happened; but the second morning when I removed the patch, I couldn’t believe my eyes! I was thrilled!!! It really worked! I kept using your patches and after about a week my cyst was hardly noticeable! AND THAT’S THE TRUTH!!

Thank you so much for developing OSMO Patches, I’m still amazed as to how they work?!

Sincerely,

Baker's cyst on the back of knee

Thank you, this is my second round of patches.

First, I had a baker’s cyst on the back of my knee, used 6 patches, pain and cyst GONE!

Have had no problems since. So, I gave the rest to a friend. He said his went away but only used 4, so wants to try more, and I have had something come up on my wrist, going to try patches. Will see what happens.
