If you're looking for a topical solution, sprays are a convenient way to apply the solution without getting your hands messy. Roll on gels are similarly convenient and have the added benefit of more precise application. Either of these are much more portable options than many of the other hot or cold therapy items and would work well as part of a first-aid kit, sports medicine bag, or even just to keep with you at your work station.
