Dexketoprofen topical is used in the treatment of mild to moderate pain such as muscular pain, joint pain, and pain due to sprain, displacement and bruising. It is also used to treat chronic pain conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation due to degeneration in the joints), spondiloarthritis (inflammation of the bones in the vertebral column) and osteochondrosis (a disorder in which development of normal bone growth is hampered).
