What are Voltarol medicated plasters?

Voltarol medicated plasters are designed to help to ease painful muscles with up to 12 hours of pain relief from each patch. Ideal for those who are dealing with muscle aches and pains caused by injury and looking for a discreet way to manage pain.


What kinds of muscular pain can these plasters help with?

Voltarol Medicated plasters can be used to ease pain caused by lots of different muscular aches and pains. Some of the most popular reasons that people use these plasters include:

How will this product help to ease my muscle aches and pains?

Voltarol medicated plasters contain the active ingredient diclofenac sodium, which is part of a group of medicines known as Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, or NSAIDs. This means that these plasters work as pain relief, but can also help to reduce swelling and inflammation.

really helps with inflammation pain
Not sure whether the plasters made any difference. Also they were not very adhesive and I had to use other tape to hold them in place. I used them for 5 successive days, day and night.
