In general no: you need to discuss this with your physician. There are a variety of chiropractic therapies, but there are some that I'm concerned about that have electrical impulses. I always advise patients caution with chiropractic to be sure there are certain conditions they have that could cause problems that could make It worse or be major danger. Again this is something specific to your health
