In brief: Probably not
It sounds as if your discomfort is still present despite having sessions with a chiropractor. Chiropractors offer a deep massage but not actual diagnosis or treatment.
It is based on an ancient and outmoded theory of disease long since proven incorrect. If you are having discomfort that is persistent, see your general physician to get started on a path of actual diagnosis and treatment.

In brief: Why???
Will they be able to tell you if you have gallbladder issues, GERD, A tumor? An infection ? Tissue swelling ? They will charge you and you will still need to see an MD to figure out what's going on.
Save your money and skip the middle man. Start with a family or primary MD. If nothing serious then you can go to chiro and pay a lot of money for a massage
