In brief: No

Chiropractic uses a deep massage based upon a faulty theory about bodily function.
While the massage can temporarily make you feel better there is no cure from their work. Never let a chiro massage your neck. This is a more fragile structure and deep thrusting massage is dangerous there have been cases of paralysis and blood clots from chiros. See an orthopod for this.
