It doesn't seem likely.  Shingles causes nerve pain, but it's due to the viral infection.  Chiropractic treatment would help pain that is caused by nerves that are pinched by bones that are out of alignment.  Since the pain of shingles is a totally different cause, a chiropractic treatment doesn't make sense.
