NSAIDs are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or painkillers, which help relieve pain. NSAIDs, including diclofenac, ibuprofen, and acetylsalicylic acid, are often used to treat:
- inflammation which can cause pain
- soft tissue injuries like sprains and strains
- body pain, including muscle and joint pain
Voltaren Emulgel® is the only over-the-counter product that contains the NSAID diclofenac in Canada. It treats pain and fights swelling and inflammation.
