Xiphoid Process - Sharp Pain

Recently started having severe sharp pain in Xiphoid Process. Pain comes and goes. Went to do and he put me on an anti-inflamorty medicine and said to ice. I am also having back pain when my xiphoid process starts to give me pain again. back feels like it needs to "crack". back is uncormortable. the obly spot where i feel this is directly behind where xiphoid process is - true middle of back.
having a ct scan today to see if anything else is going on. But not sure why pain in xiphoid process is happening and now back pain.
Should i see a chiroptractor about both issues? could they be related?
