What causes a Baker’s Cyst?

A Baker’s Cyst is a swelling in the back of the knee caused by the build-up of fluid inside a small sac called a bursa.

Baker’s Cysts are actually quite common. They can be caused by nearly any joint-related injury.

There are several common causes that may result in the formation of a Baker’s Cyst.

  • Such as a micro tear in the knee’s meniscal cartilage.
  • A repetitive stress injury.
  • Wear & tear in the knee, which occurs as we age.
  • An injury to the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee. Known as an ACL injury.
  • A sports-related injury that affects the knee.

The type of work that a person does may also make them more susceptible to developing a Baker’s Cyst.

Think about jobs that involve being on your knees, such as a gardener or carpenter.

Jobs that require long shifts without sitting or that place unusual weight loading through the knees, such as nursing, may be the cause of a Baker’s Cyst.

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.

Bursitis in my Elbow

Attention Toky, Customer care. Hi Toky, Just to say we’ve ordered 20 more patches as the first lot really improved the Bursitis in my Elbow.
