  Title Myodural cephalgia: Is it time to re-classify headaches? The migraine myth
Journal eJ Acad Chiropr Orthoped. 2008 Sep;5(3):Online access only p 1-5
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes In 1996 three scientists at the University of Maryland at Baltimore discovered a web of tissue directly connecting muscle tissue to the dura mater. Traditional treatment and understanding of headaches and particularly migraine headaches as a vascular phenomenon from studies performed in the 1930s-50s has been questioned. Migraine headache is now recognized as a neurological process. The cerebral vascular changes are an epiphenomenon to the alterations of the central nervous system. Single photon emission computed tomography scans have clearly linked abnormalities in the meninges as the epicenter of migraine pain. The International Headache Society discusses the trigeminal nerve as providing a biological explanation of referred pain. The new anatomical discoveries afforded us the structure for the completion of the neuromusculoskeletal connections. This will lead to an entire new field of research and development in all branches of medicine.
