Should I go to a chiropractor for a bad lumbar sprain?

It depends. The diagnosis lumbar sprain is not specific and says nothing about what is actually causing the pain. I would suggest you first seek a physician who can give you a specific diagnosis before seeking treatment. Once the precise cause of the pain is known, a well thought out treatment plan can be implemented. This may involve chiropractic care as part of the treatment.
