Description

Nurofen Joint & Back 10% Gel is a fast-acting topical painkiller and anti-inflammatory, suitable for a range of symptoms, including:

  • Backache
  • Muscular and rheumatic pain
  • Sports injuries.
  • Strains and sprains

How does Nurofen Joint & Back 10% Gel Target Pain?

Using a pain-relief gel instead of tablets allows you to target the pain or inflammation at its source. Since less ibuprofen will be absorbed in your system than if you took equivalent strength tablets, the chances of side effects is also reduced.
