Baker's Cyst Physical Therapy

A physical therapy program can help to relieve the symptoms of your Baker's Cyst, as well as address the underlying injury that caused the cyst to develop.

Physical therapy programs for Baker's Cysts differ depending on how much pain the person is in, whether the Baker's Cyst is ruptured or intact, and how much the Baker's Cyst affects the person's mobility.

Cold compression, massage, taping and electrical stimulation are all common treatment methods used in physical therapy. These methods are mainly designed to help with the symptoms of pain and swelling that come with a Baker's Cyst.

How do I know if an underlying injury is causing my bursitis?

A customer asked, "How do I know if an underlying injury is causing my bursitis?"

Re: How do I know if an underlying injury is causing my bursitis?

Bursitis is typically a reaction triggered by some sort of underlying injury or condition. This could be anything from a partial muscle tear to arthritis to an old injury that never quite healed in the past. This underlying injury may get re-aggravated or flared up, and cause your body to overcompensate, and produce too much synovial fluid. This synovial fluid goes into one of the many bursae you have all over your body and causes the pain and swelling associated with bursitis.

The best way to tell what kind of injury may be triggering your bursitis is to have a MRI, which should show any sort of soft tissue damage. You can use the ColdCure and the BFST to treat both your bursitis, and the condition that is aggravating your bursa.
