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.

Hip bursitis

Hi Toky,

I have received my patches and used one last night on my hip. It’s an absolute miracle!!

I have been suffering on and off for 3 years with Bursitis on my left hip. My GP has given me cortisone injections and anti-inflammatories, both of which have given some relief but not lasted and certainly not to this effect. I am due to have physio in the near future also.

I appreciate it has not cured the cause, but at least now I can work on that without the constant pain, and worse off all the lack of sleep.

A big thank you

Thanks.

Hip bursitis

Hi Toky,

Thank you for the prompt delivery of Patches. They arrived early Tuesday morning.

My wife used one last night on her hip and was surprised to find this morning that it was damp. There was a marked decrease in pain in the bursitis area. Of course, it is far too early to judge results yet, but the signs are encouraging so early. We will let you know later how the treatment performs over time. The location in the hip area will be a very good test, being so deep-seated.

Thanks again,

Kindest regards

Hi Toky, how are you? I ordered the patch because I have a meniscus tear on my knees which allows fluid to build into a baker’s cyst. The cyst I have on my right knee is larger than the left. So bending my knees is very uncomfortable because of the pressure and can be very […]

Bursa in elbow

Thank you so much for your attention and immediate response to my e-mail.

About 9 months ago I slipped on a ladder and banged my elbow which resulted in a bursa sac; This was the first time ever, but about two months ago it happened again. Your patches worked great both times. They significantly reduced my recovery time.

Thanks again!

Trochanteric Bursitis

Dear Toky,

I wanted to let you know that the Bursitis Patches have worked on my Trochanteric Bursitis.

I cannot believe it. I do not have the pain or swelling there that I have had before. It is very cool. I just wanted to let you know that, also.

We will see if it flares up again. Thanks so much for answering my questions and caring about my daughter, also. It will stay with me for a long time.

May you feel blessed and loved. Have a great day!! Take Care!!

Baker's cyst

Hello,

I have used your patches for my baker’s cyst. I started a while back, stopped, and found the cyst increased in size.

I have now been using it again for 1 week and the discomfort of it is considerably reduced.

The patches give such good relief
