Voltarol Emulgel P brings targeted and localised relief from pain and swelling (inflammation) in muscles, back and neck. It relieves pain to help you get moving again!
Voltarol Emulgel P can also be used for relief of mild arthritis. A clinical study has shown that Voltarol Emulgel P is as effective as taking 400mg oral ibuprofen for osteoarthritis of the fingers. For arthritis pain it may be necessary to apply the gel for up to 7 days to allow its effect to build up on the joint and before an improvement in pain is noticed.
Unlike products such as heat patches and cooling gels that work by only cooling or heating the skin, Voltarol Emulgel P contains a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) called diclofenac which targets pain at its source. Emulgel technology helps the gel to penetrate deeply into the skin to enhance delivery of diclofenac to the point of pain. Applying the gel 3 or 4 times a day produces a reservoir of the active ingredient diclofenac to provide your skin a source of diclofenac that lasts for hours. The gel works by blocking production of some of the body’s chemicals that cause pain, tenderness and swelling (inflammation) – so relieving your pain to help restore your mobility!
The Emulgel combines the benefit of a moisturising cream with the properties of a gel. The gel helps the active ingredient diclofenac get through the skin barrier as well as offering a cooling effect to ease the painful and red areas of the body.
