Baker's Cyst:

A Baker cyst is a fluid-filled growth behind the knee. It causes a bulge and a feeling of tightness. Also called a popliteal (pop-luh-TEE-ul) cyst, a Baker cyst sometime causes pain. The pain can get worse when with activity or when fully straightening or bending the knee.

Symptoms

In some cases, a Baker cyst causes no pain, and you may not notice it. If you do have symptoms, they might include:

Swelling behind the knee, and sometimes in the leg

Knee pain

Stiffness and inability to fully flex the knee

Causes

A lubricating fluid called synovial (sih-NO-vee-ul) fluid helps the leg swing smoothly and reduces friction between the moving parts of the knee.
But sometimes underlying conditions can cause the knee to produce too much synovial fluid. When this happens, fluid can build up in the back of the knee, leading to a Baker cyst.
This can be caused by:

Inflammation of the knee joint, which can occur with various types of arthritis

A knee injury, such as a cartilage tear

Complications

Rarely, a Baker cyst bursts and synovial fluid leaks into the calf region, causing:

Sharp pain in the knee

Swelling in the calf

Sometimes, redness of the calf or a feeling of water running down the calf

Treatment

Sometimes a Baker cyst will disappear on its own. Mild symptoms can often be controlled by avoiding activities that trigger them.
However, if the cyst is large and causes pain, you may need treatment.

Medications

A nonprescription pain reliever, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) can reduce pain and inflammation.
An injection of steroid medication, such as cortisone, into the knee can reduce inflammation. This may reduce the size of the cyst and relieve pain, but it doesn't always stop the cyst from coming back.

Therapies

Gentle exercises that improve range of motion and strengthen the muscles around the knee may help it feel better and preserve knee function.

Surgery or other procedures

To reduce the size of the cyst, your care provider may drain the fluid from the cyst using a needle. This is called needle aspiration and is often performed with ultrasound guidance.
If a joint problem is causing the cyst, arthroscopic surgery may be performed to repair the problem. For example, if a cartilage tear is causing synovial fluid to collect in the knee, the surgeon removes or repairs the torn cartilage. At the same time, the surgeon can also remove fluid from the cyst.
Rarely, surgery is needed to remove the cyst. This approach is typically used only after other treatment options haven't helped the pain and the ability to walk or perform other activities is still limited.

Overview
Frozen Shoulder:
Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, involves stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. Signs and symptoms typically begin slowly, then get worse. Over time, symptoms get better, usually within 1 to 3 years
Treatment:
A physical therapist can teach you range-of-motion exercises to help recover your shoulder movement. Your commitment to doing these exercises is necessary to regain as much movement as possible.
