Relief and support of symptoms due to Baker's Cyst. Leg specific. Please note, this is not for self-treatment. Please consult with your physician to indicate medical appropriateness.

Baker's Cyst, also called popliteal cyst, is a fluid-filled cyst behind the knee. A Baker's cyst is usually the result of knee-joint conditions, such as arthritis or torn cartilage, that cause the knee to produce too much lubricating fluid.
Symptoms, when they occur, may include a bulge and tight feeling behind the knee.
Treatment, if needed, involves treating the underlying condition. Other options include a cortisone injection, fluid drainage with a needle, or physical therapy.
