Novartis is promoting Voltaren Gel as the way to relieve pain and manage chronic joint pain in this print advertising campaign developed in Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Voltaren is a brand of Diclofenac, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken to reduce inflammation and as an analgesic reducing pain in conditions such as arthritis or acute injury.
