"Rest, Ice and Elevate an Ankle" image by pjohnkeane (John Keane)
There's more to treating muscle pain than rubbing with an ice cube or microwave heat pad. For one thing, you need to know which pain treatment is right for the situation you're facing.

My "Hot and Cold Therapy for Pain Treatment after Exercise" introduces what you need to know to treat muscle pain with either a hot or cold therapy.

I also promote that article in "Muscle Pain Treatment with Heat or Cold", which also links to the Canadian Red Cross page for finding a First Aid course near you.

One Therapeutic Writing Tip

I've been experimenting with finding key phrases from different authorities, to determine what is effective in bringing readers to my articles. The jury is still out.

The writing tip is that key phrases are just a guide to help you make your article interesting and valuable to your readers.

I started off with an idea about treating sore muscles. That happens to be a popular search item; there must be a lot of people with this problem.

The keyword research might have helped me find an audience; it's far too early to tell. But the Internet did not tell me what topic people seek the most; it does tell me what specific phrases they use when searching.

I still had to think of my topic.

It's a bit like using a thesaurus to find the most popular synonym for the concept that you've already selected.

Pursue your vision, but keep your eyes open for the road signs.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
