nail biting

I am a 43 year old male and I have been biting my nails for as long I can remember. Many times I have tried to stop but would still find myself doing it again.
I have been seeing a chiropractor for about 6 months for lower back pain which would cause my back to go out many times over the years, and have had tremendous results. During this time I noticed I stopped biting my nails. I don't even have the urge to bite them anymore. I know this may sound funny, but did chiropractic care have anything to do with this? If it did, I'd like to share this with my chiropractor.
