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.

Baker's Cyst

I’ve had bakers cyst under my knee cap for 5 years and I’ve been in constant agony and haven’t been able to bend my knee for 5 years.

All my doctor could come up with was sticking needles under my knee cap, but 3 days on patches and it’s amazing swelling has almost gone, pain is a lot less and for the first time I will be able to get on floor and play with my grandson this christmas.

Thank you it means so much to me.

Elbow Bursitis

The OSMO Patch worked great for my wife’s elbow bursitis,

I’ve placed another order through the website, a work colleague was just diagnosed with hip bursitis and I’ve recommended OSMO Patch.

Fantastic product.

Swollen elbow

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 Patches. They were AMAZING in such that after 5 applications of OSMO patches, the swelling on my elbow disappeared.

For a visual of the before and after, attached are the pictures.

Thank you very much,

Baker's cyst

To whom it may concern,

Got my patches yesterday and skeptically put one on last night.

I woke up this morning astonished, pain gone, flexibility back.

Don’t know how you discovered this but thank you. I will be ordering more as needed.

Baker's cyst

Hello, Thanks very much…. This order is my second one…. I developed a Baker’s cyst (I think) behind my left knee, jumping up and down hard on a truckload of brush I was trying to compact…. I’m 67 years old, and the next morning, I had pain behind my knees, then a large egg behind […]

Knee problems

Dear Danniel,

I fell 1.5 meters landing on my patella. The pain was severe, after 2 weeks on crutches I was left with a fluid-filled bursa the size of half a golf-ball. I already had a swelling just below my kneecap for 5 years, and another specialist had thought this was probably a lipoma.

I’ve used 16 patches so far, in conjunction with acupuncture. The bursa began to shrink from the first patch, and is now almost gone. I’ve been able to return to my Taiji classes. What is more surprising is that the ‘lipoma’ also has almost vanished.

So, no invasive needle drainage for me, no surgery, and I’m recovering fast.

I am very impressed

Many thanks Toky….

The patches were fab last time and it’s now been over 6 months since I have had to use them.

Alas, it seems my bursitis is back, so hence the need for the wonder patches……

I got a bit careless with kneeling on my knee, so all my fault
