Has anyone used Voltarol Gel to treat Retrocalcaneal Bursalitus- I think that is spelt right.  I would welcome any opinions Thanks  Ade

I have no idea what Retrocalcaneal Bursalitus is. Sorry

I have used Voltarol Emulgel last year a lot for a variety of inflammations and I think it's fab, but whether it's right for your diagnosis perhaps you should discuss with your physio or GP.

I use the gel on my back and knee and hips, and its brilliant. No idea what your condition is, so cant comment on that.

Voltarol Gel is good stuff. The only thing I'd say is to be careful as it can give you a false sense of recovery so you need to take that into account and don't overdo it and exacerbate your injury before you are fully healed 

 As for Liverbird's suppositary form, even though I don't think it would work very well on the ankle - it would ceratainly rapidly refocus your attentions from it!!

Where can you get Voltarol Gel , ive googled it but it came up with overseas pharmacies......is there a UK version??

I had mine pescribed by the doc, not sure you can get it over the counter

Anywhere... Boots, chemists, supermarkets.

Its full name is either Voltarol Emugel or Voltarol pain-eze. I bought some in Boots yesterday, so you can get it over the counter.
