My dad has been using this product in recent months and has found it effective. He aggravated arthritic pain in one of his knees when we were on a bike ride, and Voltaren emulgel has helped lessen the pain he has endured since. He has visited his doctor for a 2nd opinion, and has done his best to limit the time spent since that may re-aggravate the region. He gave me a sample of the product as well in case I ever wanted to try it in the future if I ever needed to use it for any type of specified pain relief.

WIKIPEDIA  - "Diclofenac (marketed under many brand names, see below: Trade names) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken to reduce inflammation and as an analgesic reducing pain in certain conditions.

The name is derived from its chemical name: 2-(2,6-dichloranilino) phenylacetic acid.

In the United Kingdom, India, Brazil and the United States, it may be supplied as either the sodium or potassium salt, in China most often as the sodium salt, while in some other countries only as the potassium salt. Diclofenac is available as a generic drug in a number of formulations. Over-the-counter (OTC) use is approved in some countries for minor aches and pains and fever associated with common infections.

Diclofenac is used to treat pain, inflammatory disorders, and dysmenorrhea.[1]

Inflammatory disorder may include musculoskeletal complaints, especially arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, polymyositis, dermatomyositis, osteoarthritis, dental pain, TMJ, spondylarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout attacks,[2] and pain management in cases of kidney stones and gallstones. An additional indication is the treatment of acute migraines.[3] Diclofenac is used commonly to treat mild to moderate post-operative or post-traumatic pain, in particular when inflammation is also present,[2] and is effective against menstrual pain and endometriosis."
