What is a Baker’s Cyst?

A Baker’s Cyst is a painful condition which results in swelling at the back of the knee.

This swelling occurs due to inflammation in the synovial joint which encapsulates the knee.

This leads to an out-pouching of fluid into a little balloon type sac extending from the synovial lining which encases the knee joint.

As the fluid collects it bulges behind the knee resulting in the formation of a Baker’s Cyst.

If left untreated it is possible for a Baker’s Cyst to rupture.

A ruptured Baker’s Cyst usually causes Pain & Discomfort as fluid travels down the calf muscles and into the ankle.

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.

Hello, My name is Garry Gracey; I am a former HANDBALL CHAMPION.  I banged my elbow while playing handball.  It became swollen after a few days and my family doctor recommended not to drain the bursa on the elbow but to have it take its natural healing course. “Being impatient” I googled and found OSMO […]

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,

GREAT PRODUCT! I HAVE TO ADMIT WHEN I FIRST APPLIED THE PATCH I WAS A BIT SKEPTICAL, BUT AFTER THE FIRST APPLICATION THE SWELLING IN MY ELBOW WAS GREATLY REDUCED! AFTER ABOUT SIX APPLICATIONS THE SWELLING WAS COMPLETELY GONE!! I HAVE BEEN FREE OF BURSITIS FOR SEVERAL MONTHS!

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.
