Baker's Cyst Rupture

Baker's Cyst Rupture

A Baker's Cyst is swelling that's caused by fluid from the knee joint that protrudes to the back of the knee. The back of the knee is also referred to as the popliteal area of the knee. A Baker's Cyst is sometimes referred to as a popliteal cyst. When an excess of knee joint fluid is compressed by body weight between the bones of the knee joint, it can become trapped and separate from the joint to form a fluid-filled sac of a Baker's Cyst.

A Baker's Cyst may cause no symptoms or be associated with knee pain and/or tightness behind the knee, especially when the knee is extended or fully flexed. Baker's Cysts are usually visible as a bulge behind the knee that is particularly noticeable when standing and when compared to the other unaffected knee. They are generally soft and minimally tender.

Baker's Cyst Rupture

Baker's Cysts can become complicated by the spread of fluid down the leg between the muscles of the calf. The cyst can rupture, leaking fluid down the inner leg and will sometimes cause the appearance of a painless bruise under the inner ankle. A baker's cyst rupture can mimic phlebitis - a swelling or inflammation of a vein that impairs the flow of blood - of the leg. A ruptured cyst typically causes rapid-onset swelling of the leg.

As these signs and symptoms closely resemble those of a blood clot, if you have swelling and redness of your calf, it is highly recommended to have a medical evaluation to rule out a more serious cause of your problems.

Baker's Cyst


I am so thankful that I found your website 3 years ago. My first purchase was for Insertional Achilles Tendonitis and I was very skeptical in my purchase, but I did so because of the great money back guarantee and the support that I received by phone and through email.

Now I am dealing with a Bakers Cyst. Another ailment that I have never heard of! I love that the shopping cart comes pre-loaded with everything that I needed. I was confused at first getting a leg wrap because it was my knee that was injured but reading through the website it eventually made sense. I've now been icing for a week and I'm seeing a little bit of improvement and I'm anxious to use the BFST but I know that I can't until I get all of the swelling behind my knee under control. Is there any creams or lotions I can use to help speed that up?

I haven't figured out how to put the tape on by myself. It's quite challenging because I can't see the back of my knee. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I just wanted to say thank you again for the great products that you sell.

Hi Steph,

I'm glad to hear our products have been helpful with your recovery!

In regards to using creams and lotions with the BFST, we strongly advise against it. Whenever you are feeling pain and inflammation, we always want to address it with the ColdCure to help.

If you're using the gel packs from the freezer, please only use it for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off with a thin layer between your skin and the gel pack. There isn't a minimum or maximum amount of times to use the ColdCure during the day. Once the pain and inflammation have been reduced, we advise waiting for your skin to come back to room temperature  before fitting in a BFST treatment. With the BFST, we always advise starting on level 1. You should only feel some warmth while using it.

In regards to taping for full knee support and taping for your backer's cyst, I can always include instructional videos. Unfortunately, I cannot post them to the forums. If you could email us directly at service@kingbrand.com, we can email you the appropriate information.

If you have any questions or concerns, you're always welcome to call us toll free at 1-844-400-2525

Kindest Regards,

Tobias
