Baker's cyst..pain on knee squat?
I hope someone can provide some insight for me from your experience. I am going to begin a public safety training academy in 3 months. While I passed the medical screening, I was aware of a slight nagging pain I would get off and on behind my kneecap about halfway between a squat and stand, so I went to my personal Dr. My doc thought it was chondrmalacia (sp?). Xray=neg. MRI said Baker’s cyst,(even though I feel no bulge or radiating pain) and I am awaiting approval for an orthopedic exam. I’ve read that Baker’s cyst is a symptom of an underlying joint problem.
Have any of you had this? If I undertook the demanding regimen required of this academy, ie: running hard on pavement for 26 weeks, am I likely to blow out my knee? For what it is worth, It never hurts during or after exercise. Oh, BTW I’m 48 yrs. old.
