In brief: Usually
Chiropractors offer a benign, deep massage which is usually safe.
But they do not cure and are not interested in cures. They want you to keep coming back. You should see an orthopedic specialist if you have low back pain for proper diagnosis and a treatment plan which could work.

In brief: No
Not until you know the cause of your low back pain.
There are some conditions that definitely should not be treatment with manual manipulation.
