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.
