About Voltarol®

Everyday activities that we take for granted can sometimes seem harder due to body pain including backache, joint pain or muscular pain. When it comes to muscle problems, one in three men and one in five women suffer in silence, instead choosing to grin and bear the pain.

We all take movement for granted, but as we get older joint pain, muscular pain and backache can sometimes restrict your daily routine and, as our bodies age, pain can occur as a result of natural wear and tear of the joints.

The range of Voltarol® pain relief products can help to reduce joint pain, muscular pain and backache to help you get back on your feet. Read more about the different products from Voltarol® and how they might help you.
