What is Becker’s cyst?
Becker’s cyst is characterized by swelling of the back of the knee, which is filled with fluid that causes swelling and a feeling of tightness behind the knee. The pain usually intensifies if the patient bends or stretches the leg at the knee. it serves to lubricate the joint and thus nourishes the cartilage and makes it smooth. This fluid can be excreted in larger quantities, accumulates and creates pressure on the back of the occluded pit, and a cyst develops that breaks between the tendon and muscle tissue in the form of a bulge that is very easy to feel.
Cause of Becker’s cyst
The cause of Becker’s cyst is closely related to damage to the knee joint, such as meniscus injury, inflammation of the knee joint, arthritis, gout, … Injuries often occur in disciplines that require a sudden and rapid change of direction and movements that twist the knee, sometimes even which include sudden bending or stretching at the knee joint. These are disciplines like football, basketball, skiing.

This is an extremely pleasant therapy for the patient. It is done in the form of a massage while the free electrode is in the therapist’s hand. It has the best effect on soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, joint capsule … It has shown itself perfectly in reducing muscle spasm, ie. muscle relaxation, elimination of swelling, tendon recovery and has the fastest analgesic effect so that the pain stops during the first treatment.
Electromagnet of high magnetic induction which has an excellent analgesic effect on the joints, dispersion effect on the swelling, so it proved to be extremely effective in problems of pain in the spine, hip, knee, elbow … This magnet is the first electromagnet that is individually dosed by feeling patient so that unlike standard magnets therapy on this magnet the patient can feel from mild vibrations all the way to very strong muscle contractions.
