If you are currently suffering from inflammation, swelling or other painful symptoms caused by a baker’s cyst behind the knee, then it is highly likely that this is starting to affect your work, sleep and lifestyle.

TIPS for Baker’s Cyst Relief.
1. Are there any Exercises for a Baker’s Cyst that you Should or Shouldn’t be Doing?
Unfortunately, exercise for a baker’s cyst or other such physical activities only places more stress on the injury, resulting in further aggravating the condition.
While it is important to move around normally and not to be bedridden, you should listen to your body and ease off from any activity that is causing pain or placing stress on the knee joint. This includes activities that require kneeling, such as gardening.
In particular you should avoid any type of repetitive stress where possible. Even seemingly light repetitive movements if done continually over a period of time will cause irritation (such as long walks). Unfortunately ongoing irritation may lead to a chronic baker’s cyst and subsequent formation of fibrous scar tissue, further resulting in additional inflammation.
So if you enjoy exercise, sports or participate in any physical activity we suggest that you take a break from these activities. Remember that a little sacrifice up front can give a great reward in the end.
Now while exercise for a baker’s cyst is not recommended while the condition is active, it may be useful once the condition has completely resolved to rebuild lost muscle mass and strength. This should be done gradually and in some cases it may be helpful to obtain guidance from a qualified physiotherapist to ensure you are doing this correctly.
2. Is Massage a Good Natural Treatment for a Baker’s Cyst?
Unlike a muscular injury, which can respond well to massage, a baker’s cyst contains inflammatory fluids which are encapsulated in the inflamed and swollen synovial lining of the baker’s cyst. The problem with massage is that the fluid cannot be dispersed since it is encapsulated. Furthermore massaging directly over the baker’s cyst will only further irritate the already inflamed synovial lining.
Massaging can however be extremely good for relieving areas where there is referred pain. Often people with a baker’s cyst may experience pain in other areas of the leg, such as the thigh or calf.
If you are seeing a massage therapist it is a good idea to have discussion with them and request that they do not massage anywhere directly over or close to the baker’s cyst. Any good massage therapist will have your best interests at heart and be more than happy to work with you to achieve the best outcome.
3. Should you be Applying Ice or Heat for your Baker’s Cyst Pain?
When to use ice for treating a baker’s cyst?
Ice should be used during the first 24-72 hours after you first become aware of the condition or if you accidentally knock or irritate the area. While ice can also be used to reduce pain by numbing the area, it is unlikely to have any further benefit in reducing the remaining swelling after the initial 72 hrs has passed.
When to use heat for treating a baker’s cyst?
After the first 72 hrs has passed, then heat becomes the preferred option. This is due to the fact that heat promotes blood flow, which is necessary for the healing process. IMPORTANT: Do not use heat if an infection is suspected.
What are the Current Treatment Options for a Baker’s Cyst?
As this is a type of soft tissue injury (STI), then a suitable treatment that could be administered in the first 24 – 72 hours may include rest and ice in order to minimize the amount of inflammation and swelling. Whilst this will initially reduce pain and inflammation behind the knee, it is often not enough to resolve the injury.
Instead the pain behind the knee will often continue to become worse over time, leading to further swelling behind the knee, increased discomfort and worsening pain.
When this occurs, the individual will normally then visit a doctor to learn what treatment options are available. Unfortunately there has been very little advancement when it comes to baker’s cyst treatments. This generally means that your doctor will likely only suggest just a few alternative treatment options.
In general most doctors will either suggest anti-inflammatory drugs or steroid injections to hopefully reduce the pain and swelling. Also if there is noticeable swelling behind the knee your doctor may further recommend draining the inflamed bursa with a syringe to remove the excess fluid… even surgery may be recommended in extreme cases.
For many people the above mentioned treatments will just not be an option. This may be for several reasons… including;
- Some people may have already tried one or more of these treatments with little to no benefit.
- Some individuals may not be suitable for these types of treatments due to age or a pre-existing medical condition.
Furthermore, such procedures can be painful and will be seen as invasive by many individuals that are currently suffering from this condition. Alternatively some people may simply prefer to first investigate a natural treatment option when dealing with their health.
