Study Completion Date: October 2006
Detailed Description:
This study will utilize the ProAdjuster Device as a method of assessing the motion of the cervical spine in participants with instability as determined by a Penning Radiographic analysis. Only participants with existing radiographic studies will be included in the study. No additional Radiographic will be required.
