In brief: Minimal relief

The chiro will administer a deep, thrusting massage which might give a bit of relief for a day or two.
They cure nothing, and are delighted to have you to keep coming back again and again for their deep massage. If your limbs ache a lot, day after day, see your family doctor to get started in a proper diagnosis and cure.

In brief: Depends on the cause

Chiropractic adjustment is based on restoring proper nervous conduction by altering pressures on various nervous structures (apologies to any chiropractors who may be reading this).
The adjustments you receive will attack your aches from this perspective. This differs from osteopathic manipulation, which focuses on restoring proper circulation and lymphatic drainage.
