Hello, I believe is not a very good idea for your father to jog. But I do not think walking would be a problem, but not too fast or too much.-
Diclofenac is in a group of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.
Diclofenac topical skin patch (Flector Patch) is used to treat pain caused by minor sprains, strains, or bruising.
Diclofenac topical 1% gel (Voltaren Topical) is used to treat joint pain in the hands, wrists, elbows, knees, ankles, or feet caused by osteoarthritis. This medication may not be effective in treating arthritis pain elsewhere in the body.
Diclofenac topical 3% (Solaraze) gel is used to treat warty overgrowths of skin (actinic keratoses) on sun-exposed areas of the body.
It can be absorved into ones organism causing strokes, circulation problems and heart attacks in prolonged use.
Before your father does any jogging contact his doctor first... OK
All the best
