What is Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel?

Voltarol Back and Muscle gel is a topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug known as an NSAID that can reduce pain and inflammation affecting the joints and muscles. 

How does it work?

The active ingredient diclofenac is specially formulated to be applied to the site of pain, inflammation or swelling. As an NSAID, this ingredient works by reducing the hormones that are causing the discomfort right at the site of the pain/swelling.

Is Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel suitable for me?

If you're experiencing pain or swelling as a result of a muscle or joint injury, including sprains, strains, bruises, backache or sports injuries, Voltarol Gel may be suitable for you. This product is also suitable for relieving pain caused by tendonitis (tennis elbow).

Is Voltarol stronger than ibuprofen gel?

Diclofenac and ibuprofen are both NSAIDs. However, ibuprofen may be prescribed for long-term treatment as diclofenac may cause heart problems. If you're unsure about which medication is right for you, consult with your doctor before use.
