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.

Just to give you an update: I finally received my order and I’m very happy to say that this helps me a lot with the swelling on my knee. Thank you.

Hello Danniel, Thank you for your prompt reply.

I started using the patches about 10 days ago, and the amount of improvement is unbelievable.  The lump was rock hard, and I could not bend the knee, nor straighten the leg.  Even though there is still some swelling, the knee feels almost normal.  I have run out of the patches, so will restart as soon as I receive the new batch…hopefully it will all go away. Thank you for your help, and good luck…
