Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Yes, voltaren gel can be used the shoulder area. It is not as commonly used here or any other large joint spaces because it can be harder to apply the gel to a large surface area like the shoulder or hip.

You can use it and hopefully it will work for you.

It can used up to 4 times a day if this is needed

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
