    Bakers Cyst
    Pati105 posted:
    I was recently diagnosed with a Baker's Cyst. I have an active yoga practice for the past 12 years. I have no pain or symptons.
    I only have this large cyst behind my right knee. What type of non invasive treatments would be beneficial? How can I alter my practice?

    If you're not having any symptoms then you really don't need to do anything. Baker's Cysts are a symptom of something else going on in your knee. If that issue is resolved then the cyst will go away. I had one for years that was due to arthritis. It went away on its own after I had my knee replaced. Your best bet is to just keep your knee strong an mobile.
