A baker�s cyst can cause pain, swelling, and limit the mobility in the affected knee. In some cases, complications can develop, causing serious problems with the leg. The problem with this type of cyst is that even if it is drained if the underlying cause isnt addressed, the cyst can return. Chiropractic can be used to treat bakers cyst and help relieve the pain that it causes.
A Bakers cyst, also known as a cisto poplíteo, is a fluid-filled lump behind the knee. Synovial fluid builds up to form the benign cyst. It starts inside the knee but eventually extruded through the back part of the knee and forms a lump. Many times there is no discomfort of pain from the cyst, although there may be some pressure on the back side of the knee. The pain that is often associated with a Bakers cyst is usually caused by the underlying problem that causes it. In some cases, a Bakers cyst can become large enough to inhibit movement which can impact mobility.
A Bakers cyst is caused by overproduction of synovial fluid in the knee that leads to the fluid building up and forming a lump. There are several reasons that this can happen, including knee joint inflammation and injury to the knee. A meniscal cartilage tear or another cartilage injury of the knee can cause a cyst to develop. Certain types of arthritis in the knee, such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can cause the excess fluid to accumulate. joelho arthritis, a common condition among older adults, can also cause the development of a Bakers cyst.
Sometimes the location or size of a Bakers cyst can cause swelling in the back of the knee. The cyst itself can be as large as a golf ball. This can put pressure on the joint, making it difficult to bend the knee. This pressure can extend through the calf muscle. The patient may experience tenderness and pain after exercising.
In rare cases, a Bakers cyst can burst, causing the líquido sinovial a vazar para o bezerro. This can cause swelling and knee pain that is sharp and can be intense. The patient may notice redness in the calf or experience the sensation of water running down the back of the calf area. Because symptoms of a burst Bakers cyst can closely resemble a blood clot in the leg, the patient should seek immediate medical attention to rule out a more serious condition.
Alguns não tratamento para cistos poplíteos e eles vão embora por conta própria. Se uma forma de artrite está causando o cisto, o tratamento desse problema pode resolver o cisto. O mesmo vale para um cisto causado por uma lesão no joelho. Depois que a lesão é resolvida, o cisto também é resolvido.
Se o cisto não desaparecer ou se for problemático, causar dor intensa ou limitar a mobilidade, o paciente pode conversar com seu médico sobre como drená-lo. O médico irá usar uma agulha, inseri-lo diretamente no cisto e drenar o fluido. Medicamentos esteróides também podem ser prescritos para reduzir a inflamação e o inchaço. Em casos muito raros, a cirurgia pode ser necessária para remover o cisto.
Many patients choose to seek chiropractic care to treat a Bakers cyst because it is noninvasive and does not use medications that can have unpleasant or harmful side effects. The chiropractor will assess the cyst and conduct diagnostic tests to determine the cause. This will help them decide the best course of treatment. Sometimes an old injury can continue to put stress on the joint, causing a lingering tension pattern. A chiropractor can address this, bringing the body back into alignment, thus alleviating the problem. This will help reduce the pain, inflammation, and swelling. Chiropractic is also an effective treatment for arthritis so if that is the cause of the cyst, regular chiropractic care can help considerable. Often, once the underlying condition is corrected, the cyst goes away on its own.
