Works on only certain types of muscle injuries.

published

Had 2 types of tennis injuries. Voltaren worked on one, but didn't work on the other.

Hurt my muscles near my ribs, commonly known as intercostal injury from over swinging, Voltaren gel did nothing for it.

Then hurt muscles near elbow, aka tennis elbow. Voltaren gel gave me instant 100% relief but only for about 15 mins. Afterwards it's about 60% relief for 2hrs. Let's me sleep at least.

You just got to be lucky if it works for your type of injury.

Have tried better

This works better on muscle pain or strain but that is it. Nice scent though and not like those that leave a strong scent behind either. Have tried better products of this nature.

Had a collapsed lung for months and this helped me on my way. Plus hip and groin pain. Excellent.

This is the best. Forget other creams and rubs. I have groin problems and a degenerative hip and this REALLY HELPS ME. HONESTLY.
THE BEST.

I’m a 30 year old female, am someone how has broken their L1 and L2 Lumbar spine 8 years ago from a car accident I suffer with chronic inflammation on a daily/weekly basis and can definitely says this gel works for inflammation, with a combination of using Voltaren Emulgel and Fisiocrem, it treats the swelling and relieves the pain so I am able to function and move. I would definitely recommend this gel.

It works for me.

published

Sometimes I suffer from pain on my legs due to walking a lot and it can be very painful to the point where I cannot sleep. I bought this and decided to put it on and it worked like magic!

Simply rubbish, doesn’t work

published

What a waste of money. It's useless. Found much better products in the market.
Was thinking it might be good and gave it a try. Just did nothing.
Don’t waste your hard earned money and make these companies rich. I wish I could return this and get my money back.

Do not buy from KiwiDrug

published

I am not saying Voltaren Emulgel is not good but what KiwiDrug sales is not any good and they do not stand in back of it. It did nothing for me.

It worked for me

published

My doctor suggested I try this when my arthritic back played up .It worked like a treat.I wish I had discovered it sooner.The other good thing is that only a very small quantity enters your bloodstream unlike the oral tablets.

brings relief but short lasting

published

I have repeated strain injuries in my wrists from playing action sports at school and I find Voltaren is an essential in my school bag! It does bring relief to my aching wrists but I do find it doesn't last long. I go through a lot and it does get expensive but it does work!

Great relief

published

The relief from this gel was very quick. It worked quickly and effectively.
The first time I used it, it was in conjunction with pain relief but I used a 2nd time and it worked just as well.
Very happy to recommend this product

Good product for pain

published

I have found Voltaren Gel to be helpful over the years, Having had major surgery for my back it has put pressure on my knee. You have to work it into the joint and over the muscles where they join the joint. It works well for long term usage in conjunction with Voltaren tablets, the 25mg is available without prescription. Main thing with the tablets that long term use may cause some kidney damage.
Muscle damage is better treated with one of the massage creams for pain.

Waste of money

published

I was recommended this gel by a pharmacist for severe back pain (not involving pinched nerve) after i strained it picking up my 16 month old daughter. It did not work for me at all. I got more relief using a hot water bottle. Perhaps the gel would be more suitable for superficial muscle pain. Not happy i paid $22 for it, yet it didn't work even just a little...

Ineffective; waste of money

OK

published

This is a rub that works effectively for joint or muscle pain. I have used it and it has worked for the short term for me. Overall, I can use this when my pain is a bit slight and at that time it works fine.
I have had to use this when I had very bad back pain and it works for the moment. It also works if you have any joint pain like in the knees as well.
Can be a bit expensive, but some chemists, like Chemist Warehouse have it on special or at least at a lower price.

Good

published

Excellent pain rub for joint or muscle pain. I use the voltaren emulgel for a shoulder joint problem which puts me in a lot of pain. I find the emulgel is excellent for settling down the inflamation. My husband also uses it regularly for back pain and finds it really helpful. The main thing I find with the emulgel is you need to work it into the joint or area around the bones so it gets right into the joint and it then it works really well for inflamation and tenderness but if you just rub it in the general area it does not work as well.
good for inflammation and joint pain
expensive
