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.

Real accounts by real people. Hear what they have to say!

I have been meaning to write you for some time now and tell you how great the OSMO patches have worked for me. 

I have Baker’s cyst that have developed over the past four years on both knees and have gone to an Orthopedic Specialist to have them drained via syringe numerous times, plus the cortisone shots.  Researching the topic one day, I discovered your website and hesitantly ordered the OSMO patches.  Just last week, I re-ordered your patches for the third time…. they work amazing. There is such a difference when I wake up in the morning after sleeping with them on my knees. 

The fluid is drawn out and mobility is greatly improved.  I will probably need surgery one day to repair torn cartilage in my knees, but these are a greatly helping me with the swelling/fluid build up like nothing else has before.
 
Thank you for developing such a wonderful product and for the prompt and efficient service when placing an order.  They are really helping me.

Thank you for the bursitis patches.  My husband has used them every night for 7 days and it is almost completely gone. He feels really good about it. Best regards,

Hello! I wanted to write to let you know that I truly feel that a combination of your OSMO patches and infrared laser treatments on my knee have nearly cured my knee.  I had a probable torn miniscus, and had developed a baker’s cyst behind the knee from the injury.  I am a very active […]

Ok, I have an arthritic knee from playing American football and having an operation when I was 18. Going to a doctor to have it drained would cost me well over $220… I tried the OSMO Patch about a 1-2 years ago, thinking it may be a gimmick, and is was no gimmick because it works. The pressure on my knee is lessened by morning and I can move around a lot better. I’m health conscious, watch what I eat, go to the gym 3-4 times a week and of course I work. It is important to be open to alternatives to the traditional doctor visit and the “give me a pill” attitude that most of the public has because we, as individuals, have to realize that we, not someone else, are the most interested in our own health. Thank you,

Thank you for your excellent product.

First use was fantastic and after five times it had solved my problem of my swollen and stiff knee. I ordered another batch just to keep some extras on hand because from now on, I won’t do without them.

I have already recommended them to several people that have had similar problems. Thanks again for your wonderful product. I’m very grateful for the OSMO Patches.
