In brief: Possible

Many times conservative care can include chiropractic care.
if you are not better soon (less than 10-15 treatments), then consider other options like a spine fellowship trained pain specialist.

In brief: Physical therapy

uses modalities and exercises to stretch and strengthen muscles ( which you can do long term).
Chiropractors may do modalities and manipulation. I refer my patients for PT with good results.
