In brief: No!

See an orthopedist first to get the low-down, and ask whether your back is stable enough for chiropractic or physical therapy.
If he/she says yes, then go for it.

Seen by a neurosurgeon or orthopaedic spine surgeon.
Once healed and cleared by the surgeon, one can go to the chiropractor for other back related issues if desired.
