Would a chiropractor be able to diagnose back/neck disease?

Not likely: Chiropractors interpret all backs as having disease. Your visit is proof that there is a problem and they will find one for sure. Chiropractors offer a deep, sometimes satisfying massage, but no diagnosis and certainly no cure. See your regular doctor if you have a problem.
