Well, that depends on what exactly your problem is. I went to a chiropractor with no results, ending up with having a trapped nerve which couldn't be fixed by a chiropractor.
If it is something like that, the longer you leave it, the worse it will get. A chiropractor can help if it's the right type of problem for him which his skills and knowledge can allow him to fix. Make sure you go to a good one who knows his limitations, and doesn't try to fix something beyond his knowledge. There are some out there who are pretty whacked; if they start chanting over you and throwing smoke packets on your stomach, more than likely they don't know their business or are just trying to make money off of you.
And I am not swearing by them either, because my experience with chiropractors was horrible. It was only horrible for me because my body just couldn't take it, there is some undiagnosed medical condition I have in which I have severe joint pain, (possibly fibromyalgia, since it is hereditary). I would be fine in the office, but several hours afterward, I just couldn't take it. I'm not trying to scare you, just saying that everybody's bodies are different and respond to things differently.
Um.. your original question sounds a lot like my problem before I got it fixed, I do think arm braces helped. The pressure on the wrists actually feels, for me, good, and relieves the pain. I am actually having a flare up of some sort right now, and wearing a brace makes it feel much better.
Best of luck!!!
