Chiropractic care may ease back-related leg pain

People with leg pain related to back problems had more short-term relief if they received chiropractic care along with exercise and advice, rather than exercise and advice alone, a new study has found. Increasingly, spinal manipulative therapy by chiropractors, exercise and self-management are being recommended as low-risk strategies for back-related leg pain, but good research studies have been lacking, experts say.

Al Franken Opponent: 'He's Been Invisible As A Senator'

Since Al Franken barely won a U.S. Senate seat in Minnesota after a statewide recount in 2008, the former Saturday Night Live comedian has kept his head down and largely avoided national publicity in an effort not be portrayed as one big joke of a legislator. But this low-key strategy may be backfiring for the liberal Democratic incumbent now that he faces a challenge in this year's election from a Republican businessman, who is arguing that the senator should have been out-front more the last six years.
