About Anti-Inflammatories

A medicine cabinet slightly open full of medicine.

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.
