Welcome to healthcare Magic!
It does not look like a complication from chiropractor treatment but either a bite or a furuncle which is spreading fast.
Having chills is further Alarming that you should get urgent ER visit.
You will need a close assessment and antibiotics and antiallergic treatment the dose and medicines will be known to your clinician.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
