Not sure : Reflux becomes a disease when it causes organ damage or significant lifestyle problems. It is causes by a faulty valve between the stomach and esophagus. Not sure how a chiropractor helps this, but it may be worth a try. Good luck!

Yes: If they prescribe proton pump inhibitors. Back or neck manipulation is not likely to help reduce the acid which is causing the symptoms. A physician, especially primary care or gastroenterologist, is more likely to have the full range of skills to properly treat this disorder.
