What Causes Condition A Baker’s Cyst?

The cause of a baker’s cyst or a popliteal cyst is usually a problem in the knee joint itself, such as a meniscal tear, osteoarthritis, or gout.

A baker’s cyst is also sometimes seen in children, particularly boys aged 4 to eight years old. However, in children, it is unlikely to be related to a problem in the knee joint.

Our Chiropractors and Physical therapists will identify what the cause of your baker’s cyst is and provide specialized treatments and care.

Laser Therapy For A Baker’s Cyst

Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses gentle laser energy to reduce inflammation and pain. It can be beneficial for baker’s cysts as it helps improve blood circulation and reduces swelling and scarring. Laser therapy works by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes, which helps promote pain relief and faster healing. Each session only lasts 10-25 minutes.

Shockwave Therapy For A Baker’s Cyst

Shockwave therapy can be used in combination with laser therapy and exercise therapy to resolve the cause of the baker’s cyst in the first place.

Shockwave therapy works to reverse chronic conditions and promote optimal healing of the tissue. It used high-powered sound waves to cause a pro-inflammatory response in the cells of the tissue, such as muscle, tendon, ligament, skin, and fascia.

We may also recommend exercises or stretches that you can do at home to help improve your range of motion and reduce pain.

It is important that you continue with these exercises even after the baker’s cyst has healed, as they can help prevent future injuries.
