Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Well, Voltaren Gel contains diclofenac, It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).

It works by reducing pain and inflammation. Yes, it would be very useful for resolving arthritis related pain.

One may find, A dosing card inside of the carton. And the gel should be applied within the rectangular area of the dosing card up to the 2 gram or 4 gram line .

You should avoid showering/bathing for at least 1 hour after the application of this gel.

You should also take help from physical therapist. Physical therapy includes various modalities like - Short wave diathermy, Infra red , Wax therapy , these will help you a lot.

You can follow above measures, and would get good results.

Hope this helped
