Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine if the ProAdjuster system of analysis can be used to determine cervical spine instability using the Penning system of radiographic marking as a standard of comparison.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Cervical Spine Instability Device: motion analysis by durometer

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.

Study Type : Observational
Observational Model: Defined Population
Primary Purpose: Screening
