Helping you to get on with life
The impact of pain on people around the world.
The GSK Global Pain Index is an in-depth global study into physical pain and its impact on people’s lives. In 2017 we launched our second Index which analysed attitudes towards pain in 32 countries. The results suggest that pain remains a problem for over 95% of adults worldwide – with over 85% experiencing head pain. In addition, 56% have suffered pain for an extended period of time and the average worker takes at least 2.6 days off sick each year because of their body pain.*
The science behind Voltaren
The active ingredient in most Voltaren products is diclofenac. This is a powerful nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory which inhibits pain-signalling chemicals in the brain. The Voltaren range includes oral (tablet and liquid capsules) and topical (applied to the skin) treatments. The diclofenac in Voltaren gel works by penetrating deep through the skin, relieving pain and reducing inflammation directly at the source.
Voltaren is the number one topical pain reliever worldwide**
