Baker's Cyst Natural Remedies

Although medical treatments are available, Baker's Cysts usually don't require this form of intervention. Treatment for cyst pain is to make yourself more comfortable as your body naturally heals itself. Resting your legs frequently throughout the day helps alleviate inflammation and prevents further strain on your knees.

Healing doesn't happen overnight. A Baker's Cyst healing depends on your body and its ability to bounce back from injury. Inflammation and pain may take two to six months to heal. Although there is no clear-cut answer as to when you will be free of this pain and the cyst that goes along with it, taking proper care of your legs and knees helps.

Rest

Rest

Rest and protect the knee. Stop, change or take a break from any activity that is causing pain and soreness. A Baker's Cyst is usually a secondary inflammation due to a primary injury. Resting will allow for the body's natural healing process to begin. The more you are able to rest your knee, the quicker the recovery time will be.

Ice

Ice

Ice will help with inflammation by slowing down the amount of blood being supplied to your knee. With an injury, blood is sent to the knee to help deliver nutrients and oxygen to the injury, to help heal it. With inflammation present, this extra blood flow causes pain.

Compression

Compression

Along with ice, compression will help with reducing inflammation as well as helping to stabilize the injury. Compression will help keep the knee safe so it can't be injured any further.

Elevation

Elevation

Have the knee elevated above the heart by placing pillows underneath it while you rest, and that will help inflammation from recurring. It is important to rest your knee as often as possible to give your body the best chance it has to heal.

Stimulate Blood Flow

Stimulate Blood Flow

Along with the RICE method, stimulating the blood flow will greatly improve your healing times. Blood carries nutrients and oxygen and one of its jobs is to naturally heal the body. By increasing the blood flow to the injury site, you will be increasing the nutrients and oxygen to the injury site, therefore speeding up the healing process. Look online for places that specialize in Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy medical devices.

Hello Annie,
So sorry to hear that you are experiencing so much pain,
We have had a lot of customers who have reported high success rates by using our King Brand BFST and ColdCure wraps and I do feel this would be an excellent recommendation based on your current condition.
It's important to use both BFST and ColdCure in regards to treatment for your Baker Cyst. The ColdCure helps with swelling/inflammation and pain and then the Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST) will help to deliver increased circulation to the injured area promoting healing while at rest.

Re: Baker Cysts


I've had a Bakers cyst behind my right knee for over six years. The golf-ball size cyst has remained constant during this period except when it occasionally swells slightly, usually following leg exercises like walking, jogging, biking and plyometric jumping exercises. I've never done anything to treat it short of laying off leg workouts when my knee becomes too stiff and inflexible. Its never very painful, but can become extremely uncomfortable.

Will BFST still heal this longstanding Bakers cyst ?


Re: Baker Cysts


Hi Drrandy51, Thanks for your enquiry.

As you've had the Bakers Cyst for so long, you may want to follow-up with your doctor to find out why the cyst has remained a constant golf-ball size. Often times medical professionals may recommend intervention for Bakers Cysts (such as drainage of fluid), plus usage of cold / ice to reduce inflammation and swelling behind the knee is usually also recommended.
- If you tend to notice an increase in swelling post-activity, you will likely benefit from using cold therapy when this occurs; to help reduce the new swelling and inflammation.
- Cold therapy may even help you right now, to target the underlying inflammation you may not necessarily be aware of behind the knee.

A Bakers Cyst is usually a symptom of an underlying condition in the knee itself (often a meniscus tear or injury). As far as the BFST is concerned, this can be used to harness faster recovery and healing by improving blood flow and circulation - it doesn't matter how new or mature the issue is. We advocate for using the BFST when underlying inflammation and swelling is under control. Using the BFST too soon (with these symptoms) won't cause any harm or further injury, however, the body would become quite hot during a treatment - signifying that the blood flow is being overstimulated and there's nowhere for the additional blood flow to be delivered to.
- The BFST isn't a heating pad, therefore, heat is not a desirable effect. The sensation experienced during a BFST treatment should be a very minor warming (and some people feel a bit of tingling); this is how your body is responding to improvement of blood flow in the targeted area.

We would be more than happy to further discuss your health concerns in relation to usage of Cold and BFST - Please call us toll free on 1844-400-2525 :)
