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 2018 we launched our third Index which analysed attitudes towards pain in 24 countries. The results suggest that pain remains a problem for over 92% of adults worldwide – with 86% experiencing body pain.  43% of individuals who experience pain do not know the cause of their most frequent pain and only 17% seek relief for their most frequent body pain immediately. **

The science behind Voltaren

The active ingredient in most Voltaren products is diclofenac. This is a powerful nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) which inhibits pain-signaling chemicals. The Voltaren range includes oral (tablet and liquid capsules) and topical (applied to the skin) treatments. The diclofenac in topical Voltaren products such as gels or medicated patches, 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***
