I have spoken many times about this, but finally I have been directed to the peer reviewed research to support this:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Carrick+brain+cervical

This clearly shows that a stiff, hypomobile segment at C2 directly inhibits function in the ipsilateral cerebellar hemisphere and contralateral cerebral hemisphere.

The paper also shows that mobilising that stiff segment instantly reverses the deactivation.

Finally back to this topic:
On the face of it these may look a long way from ADHD- but what both papers are talking about is the effect that an upper neck malalignment has on scrambling input information to the brain
Pleasingly this is establishing a multidisciplinary approach rather than just relying on one professional group.
