I need to have this with me at all times. I have carpal tunnel and get really bad pain in my hand and wrist. Just a drop of this stuff and rub it in and I am pain free for a few hours. It is a great pain reliever - even works for my Mom that suffers from arthritis.
I don't find that it helps ease the pain. The smell isn't great, the tingly feeling is nice but I don't find it provides pain relief. There are better products on the market.
Was reluctant to apply anything to my skin that I wasn't sure about; however, hurt my back and side due to a nasty fall just before Christmas and the pain was hanging on. I was quite surprised that Voltaren really did relieve the pain for quite a long time.
I'm not really much of a believer in rubs for pain relief, but after hearing so many of my patients swear by Voltaren I decided to give it a try. wow! I have now used it on my back, and on my very tense and painful shoulders, and neck, and it definitely made a differ nice. It doesn't eliminate the pain totally, but it d finitely reduces it for me, and let's me get some exercise, which will help to rehabilitate the area. I have tried the regular and extra strength.
I highly recommend this stuff, it doesn't smell strong but it works strong! Amazing, within approx 15 min it's already working. The price is a little high but it's well worth it, I use it all the time.
I was told by the Pharmacist that this is a great alternative to just taking Naproxen orally by pill. The rub doesn't have to go through your liver or kidney or stomach to be absorbed so it is good for young children or seniors or anyone with a sensitive tummy.
It goes right to the pain and you can massage it in while applying it which is an added benefit to tight or sore muscles or joint pain. Also, your arthritis in your hands, use this like a hand cream 3 x a day. It moisturizes your hands while removing pain. I find when my hands are soft and supple too, the arthritis is less intense.
This ointment works extremely well for myself and my family. It helps relieve sore aching muscles. I find it doesn't take long for it to start working as well. I got a free sample in the mail and will Definitely be buying more.
Voltaren works amazingly for joint aches and pains. It is an anti-inflammatory topical product that is easy to apply. Prior to Voltaren being on the market, I was prescribed diclofenac for my knees. It's liquid and messy.
I suffer from chronic pain and have tried many topical creams over the years and this particular one did nothing to relieve the pain. Voltaren extra strength claims to be 2 times stronger and last up to 12 hours. This gel smelled like rubbing alcohol which was quite strong at first but once l applied to my skin, which was non greasy; smell went away. In my opinion, I felt I was applying straight Rubbing Alcohol on my skin. I had received this product free to try out and am so grateful because now I know Voltaren does not work for me.
I didn't find that this helped me. I have lower back and knee pain, and i like using creams and stuff like that instead of always taking pills for the pain. Most of the time the creams work but this one didn't. I tried it multiple times and there was no difference in my pain. Most other pain creams, etc you could find will probably work better than this.
