Put simply, Voltarol Gel is a pain relief medication which is applied to the painful or swollen area.

So whether you are someone who suffers from chronic pain or have recently experienced an injury, this medication may be able to provide you with the relief you need.

Let’s take a look at all the information you need to make an informed decision on whether or not this is the medicine you’re looking for!

How Does Voltarol Gel Work?

One of the most common questions people have about Voltarol Gel is how exactly it works to provide pain relief.

The active ingredient is diclofenac, which belongs to a class of drugs known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). 

When you apply the gel to your skin, the diclofenac is absorbed through your skin and into the affected area. From there, it begins to work by reducing the production of prostaglandins, which are chemicals in the body that cause pain and inflammation.
