Can a chiropractor treat my lower back pain if it's caused by ligament strain or muscle strain?

In brief: Yes

Chiropractic techniques can relieve pain from restricted spinal movement, often seen in reaction to muscle strain or injury to a leg which changes your walk.
A ligament injury (connecting bones, affecting stability) can worsen with chiropractic treatment and set off more muscle spasms and pain. Your response to chiropractic treatment can help guide medical treatment, if required.

Possible but not likely unless they use the old highly ballistic adjustments.
