Can a Baker’s cyst be prevented?
The best way to prevent a Baker’s cyst is to prevent knee injuries. A few ways you can prevent an injury to your knee include:
- Wearing proper footwear.
- Using the balls of your feet to turn instead of your knees.
- Warming up properly before you exercise and cooling down afterward.
- Stopping immediately when you get a knee injury. It’s important to ice, rest, wear a compression wrap and elevate your injury when it happens. Talk to your healthcare provider about any knee injuries to make sure you’re caring for them correctly.
