Is Chiropractic pure woo?

Simple question really, but I am woefully ignorant on Chiropractic and the chiropractors who administer treatments.

Are they on the same level as psychics, homeopathy, Mayan end-of-the-world predictions and so on?

Perhaps the practice is just mostly or somewhat woo... kind of like acupuncture (IE, legitimate research has been mixed, some insurance companies accept it as a valid medical treatment)?

Or is it really legitimate, to be as respected as dentistry and medicine?
