What is Voltarol Back and Muscle Pain Relief 1.16% Gel
With its triple effect, Voltarol Back and Muscle Pain Relief Gel relieves pain, reduces inflammation and helps speed up recovery. It brings targeted local relief for pain and swelling (inflammation) in muscles, back and neck. In addition, the gel relieves pain in joints, sprains, strains and bruises, as well as minor sports injuries.
How does Voltarol Back and Muscle Pain Relief 1.16% Gel work
Unlike products* that work by only cooling or heating the skin, Voltarol Back and Muscle Pain Relief Gel contains a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) called diclofenac which targets pain at its source. The Emulgel technology helps the gel to penetrate deeply into the skin to enhance delivery of diclofenac to the point of pain. The gel works by blocking production of some of the body’s chemicals that cause swelling (inflammation), pain and tenderness. Voltarol Back and Muscle Pain Relief Gel has shown to be effective in providing relief and reducing neck pain compared to non-medicated gel.
*cooling gels and heat patches
The active ingredient in Voltarol Back and Muscle Pain Relief Gel, diclofenac, has been used as a pain reliever for 30 years in the UK. The Emulgel formula provides both the benefits of moisturising cream and a cooling gel.
How to use Voltarol Back and Muscle Pain Relief 1.16% Gel
Gently rub or massage a small amount of gel into the skin around the painful or swollen area. An amount ranging in size from 1 penny to a 2 pence piece will usually be sufficient. However, the amount of gel needed will vary depending upon the size of the painful or swollen area (maximum daily dosage 16g). Apply 3 to 4 times a day unless your doctor, general practitioner or pharmacist tells you otherwise, and allow at least 4 hours between applications of the gel. Do not apply more than 4 times in any 24 hour period.
Consult your doctor if pain and swelling do not improve within 7 days. Do not use the gel for longer than 7 days unless the longer treatment has been recommended by a doctor. The gel is not recommended for use in children under 14 years of age.
Voltarol Back and Muscle Pain Relief Gel has a pleasant smell and will not stain clothing. It is neither greasy nor sticky and is easy to rub into the skin.
Contains diclofenac diethylammonium. Always read the label.
