Migraine is a very complex neurological disorder, which is not fully understood. There are many different theories as to what the cause of a migraine is. There is some very interesting research being conducted according to this blog on the Blair Upper Cervical Website "Dr. Scott Rosa, an Upper Cervical Chiropractor, has been conducting research with Dr. Raymond Damadian, medical doctor and inventor of the MRI, and what they have discovered is simply amazing. By using upright MRIs, and CSF studies, they two believe they have found one of the major causes of migraine headaches. Dr. Rosa's research shows that when someone experiences a head-neck injury, such as whiplash, the top vertebra of the neck (called the Atlas or C1) will twist out of alignment. When this misalignment happens, due to its attachments to the brain, it will literally pull the cerebellum partially through the skull. The result is that spinal fluid will not be able to escape the brain, causing a backflow of spinal fluid. This backflow will cause swelling and will eventually crush the small blood vessels of the brain, resulting in a migraine headache. Dr. Rosa and Dr. Damadian have provided studies with images to show how the upper neck misalignment is affecting the flow of spinal fluid as well as blood flow. What is more impressive is that Dr. Rosa has also provided images after adjusting the upper neck that shows a complete reversal of the condition. Dr. Damadian has even stated publicly that adjusting the atlas (C1) is a missing link in health care. While chiropractors have always had great success with migraine sufferers, this new research can pinpoint the exact reason why."
