Voltarol Medicated Plaster
The Voltarol Medicated Plaster is a medicine that relieves pain. It belongs to a group of medicines know as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Each Voltarol Medicated Plaster is used for the local symptomatic and short-term treatment of pain associated with acute strains, sprains or bruises on the arms and legs as a result of injuries, e.g., sports injuries in adolescents from 16 years of age and adults.
You must talk to a doctor if you do not feel better after 7 days of using a Voltarol Medicated Plaster.
Voltarol Gel Patch Medicated Plaster
The main active ingredient included in Voltarol Gel Patch Medicated Plaster is called diclofenac sodium. This is a type of NSAID that reduces swelling and pain associated with joints, muscles and bones.
It’s used to typically treat the following conditions:
- Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
- Sprains and strains in muscles and ligaments
- Back pain
- Ankylosing spondylitis
Available in Voltarol Gel Patch Medicated Plaster, it can also come in the form of tablets and capsules, including slow-release tablets and capsules, and suppositories. These types of diclofenac sodium are only available on prescription.
Usually only reserved for hospital use, it can also be given as an injection or as eyedrops.
Voltarol 140mg Medicated Plaster
As well as using a medicinal product like a Voltarol 140mg Medicated Plaster, there are other ways you can help relieve joint pain.
When joints are aching or painful, the following tips can help improve things and bring relief, albeit temporary:
- Avoid moving the joint in ways that worsen the pain.
- Aim to keep a healthy weight to help reduce stress on the joints.
- Regular exercise, as well as stretching and strengthening exercises, can help with joint pain. A physiotherapist can help by telling you what exercises you should do, depending on the area of pain.
If your joint pain is a result of injury, immediate medical care should be sought. The further you delay getting treatment, the joint can be further damaged. Sudden swelling, joint deformity, or being unable to move the joint are all signs that you need medical attention. Applying a Voltarol 140mg Medicated Plaster could be one of many products recommended to you by your doctor.
Voltarol 140mg Medical Plaster
To help with inflammation and healing, the body release chemicals known as Prostaglandins. When these chemicals are released, as well as the benefits, they also cause some negative side effects such as pain and fever.
Prostaglandins are produced by an enzyme called cyclooxygenase (COX). A single Voltarol 140mg Medical Plaster and other NSAIDs work to reduce the amount of COX-1 and COX-2 that are produced, resulting in a reduction of any ongoing inflammation, pain, or fever.
Depending on the location of the muscle pain and/or you are suffering from it in multiple locations, your doctor may recommend another form of anti-inflammatory instead of using a Voltarol 140mg Medical Plaster.
Voltarol 140 Mg Medical Plaster
Before using medication such as Voltarol 140 mg Medical Plaster, it’s important to consider if your muscle pain or feeling of strain is because of DOMS.
Delayed onset muscle soreness, or DOMS for short, is the feeling of muscles aching for a few days after exercise and can affect people of all fitness levels. This is particularly apparent after doing a new exercise, or you’ve been pushing yourself harder than usual.
Sometimes DOMS can take 2-5 days and usually no medical attention is required. However, during those 2-5 days, your movement can be severely impaired and lower your quality of life. Using a Voltarol 140 Mg Medical Plaster in this case won’t result in a faster recovery rate. You’ll need to rest and allow the muscles to rebuild and regain strength.
Remember, if DOMS persists for longer than 5 days, avoid any more exercise and contact your GP.
