Find out how prescription Voltaren Gel—soon available over the counter—helped these arthritis sufferers get back to doing the things they love and why an orthopedic surgeon prescribes it.
Diclofenac sodium is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is often used to treat arthritis pain. It falls in the same class (NSAID) as drugs such as ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen (Aleve). Diclofenac works by temporarily blocking the production of pain signaling chemicals called prostaglandins.
Voltaren targets pain directly at the source to deliver nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicine for powerful arthritis pain relief.
