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.

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 […]

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 […]

I had a work accident 5 years ago and fractured both of my feet. The specialist said feet never heel well. He was right. I suffered terrible pain and swelling constantly.

Received patches on 10 day (Nov.8). Thanks. Patches have been positive results for my Barkers Cyst. Will probably order more patches latter on to keep my knee in shape. Regards

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,
