I, too, have developed a Baker's cyst. Because I was walking abnormally, I subsequently developed inflammation in both feet, misaligned back, and painful leg cramps. After hobbling for two months, I finally saw my chiropractor last week (who is also a herbalist). He diagnosed my problem, did adjustments to my knee, and recommended chondroitin and boswellia 4 times a day. He also recommended massage therapy and ion cleanse which I haven't yet pursued. Within a week, my cyst had reduced in size from one inch in diameter to about one-third of an inch.
Last night I had a fall, so now I'm back to square one with ice packs and elevation of leg.
