In brief: No help

Migraines are a vascular phenomenon.
Even if one were to believe the bizarre theories that chiropractors depend upon, these postulate a nerve dysfunction from the spinal nerves. Migraines are in the head from the vessels and not the nerves. The 45 degree angle issue sounds bogus; fad diets are common with chiros. You should see a neurologist to sort this out.

In brief: It May

Do not trust the so-called x-ray report without verification by a board certified radiologist.
Most chiropracters i know grossly misread xry, of children at least. There are foods that trigger migraine attacks and when identified, should be avoided.Some migraines do respond to chiropractic manipulation.

In brief: No

There is no evidence that a certain neck angle causes migraines.
But changes in diet and avoiding specific food triggers as well as improving overall health has been shown to help with migraines.
