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.

Hip problems

Hi,

I had a sore hip muscle at the back of my hip. The Dr. said we will drain the fluid out then give you a Cortisone shot. I said no way my hip was so sore it was painful sitting and going up stairs.

I ordered your patches and the first night they came I applied it, the next morning the powder was hard, I guess from being wet. As soon as I stood on it, no PAIN, I woke up my wife and said it works.

It is still a little sore, when you sit. But it’s 99% better.

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.

Thank you so much.

Bursitis in heel

Dear Wonderful Mediwise Pty. Ltd.

My brother bought your patches for the bursitis in my heel.

After the first patch on Tuesday, I saw no results. After the second patch, I was actually worse. Then while wearing the third patch yesterday, I was thrilled to see improvement…so much so that I cancelled the appointment that I had with the doctor…scheduled for today!

Now I’m using the fifth patch, and of course am anxious to see what the end of today will bring.

Sincerely.

Baker's cyst

Thank you for responding. I think I will save my last two patches in case I need them. Right now, I have such great improvement, I am no longer wearing the knee brace and I can walk up and down stairs with alternating feet. Have not done that for a while! Thanks again,

Hip bursitis

Hello,

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.

Tendonitis or bursitis

I have been prescribed XXXXXXXX 750mg for my shoulder. Tendonitis or bursitis, my Doctor said. The anti inflammatory meds were working well until I moved some furniture for my wife and then the pain came right back with a vengeance I put a patch on my shoulder last night and was amazed when I removed it […]

Bursa on elbow

Hi, I want to add to your list of testimonials my experience.

I developed a bursa on my right elbow by supporting a heavy motor which was the size of a tennis ball. I was attracted by your lists of results and tried 10 patches. The bursa reduced in size to perhaps a golf ball, Determined to follow through, I bought 10 more and continued treatment.

It has now disappeared completely and not returned. I have little doubt your patches worked the miracle on my elbow and heartily endorse their claims to fame.
