I went to the chiropractor yesterday and my massage therapist was a little heavier handed then I usually have. Now my neck and shoulder have swelling.

In brief: Bad idea

The deep, dangerous thrusting undertaken by chiropractors can be dangerous.
And they usually have no consent form as to the danger. Never let a chiropractor do anything to your neck. Those bones are not designed to handle such abuse. Thoracic and Lumbar vertebrae can withstand such thrusting. You might entertain the thought that seeing a chiropractor is in fact a waste of money.
