I doubt that: a hiatal hernia would be making audible popping noises.
Dr. Silviu Pasniciuc

Not the hernia: Hernia will be quiet, a sternocostal joint may.
Dr. Michael Gabor
Diagnostic Radiology 33 years experience
Most likely: not. A chiropractor would not be able to manipulate a hiatal hernia, and it would not present as a palpable lump.
