Voltaren is teaming up with music superstar Paula Abdul, who uses Voltaren for her arthritis pain. Staying active is important for arthritis patients everywhere, and together, Voltaren and Paula Abdul will inspire people to "rediscover the joy of movement".  

"I'm excited to partner with Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel to share my personal journey with arthritis and success using Voltaren," Paula said. "I've put my joints through a lot over the years. Dancing, jumping, flipping – it's my heart and soul, but I've been pushing my joints to the limit for decades as a result. When I was diagnosed with arthritis, my doctor prescribed Voltaren which made a huge difference in relieving my pain and helping me move with ease. I am so excited it's now available OTC at stores nationwide."

Joint pain due to arthritis symptoms is a daily reality for millions of people in the United States, and with many people across the country staying at home more often, finding arthritis pain relief is more important than ever. In a recent study of 1,000 U.S. adults aged 35+ suffering from joint pain* conducted by Voltaren in partnership with Wakefield Research, 82 percent of respondents said their physical activity has decreased as a result of more time at home, and 92 percent of respondents report that their joint pain is the same or more severe during this time.

 "Stay-at-home orders led to a unique set of challenges for those with arthritis," said Jissan Cherian, Director, U.S. OTC Marketing at GSK Consumer Healthcare. "Now, more than ever, we need to offer solutions that help ease the challenge of joint pain and inspire arthritis patients to rediscover the joy of movement, even as we adapt to changing routines and a new way of life."
