Cranial Cervical Instability, also known as CCI, is a medical condition that occurs when the ligaments and connective tissues that support the head and neck become weakened or damaged. This can lead to excessive movement between the skull and the upper cervical spine, causing a variety of symptoms such as chronic headaches, neck pain, vertigo, and even cognitive impairment. CCI is often seen in individuals with conditions such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome but can also be caused by trauma or degenerative changes in the spine. Treatment for CCI may include physical therapy, medication, or in severe cases, surgery.


Dr. Saperstein has been diagnosing and treating patients with CCI for over 20 years. He has the expertise to read the medical imaging to determine if someone has CCI and which treatment would be best. If you suspect you may be suffering from CCI, contact our office.

Multi Cervical Unit (MCU)

Multi Cervical Unit (MCU) is an advanced technology device used to rehab Cranial Cervical Instability patients. Studies have shown that over 90% of patients reported significant progress. Researchers report that patients have reduced pain, increased neck strength, and overall improved quality of life. Traditional medical treatment calls for rest, medication, and manipulation. However, when we are treating the symptoms, the underlying cause of chronic pain remains.

The Multi Cervical Unit (MCU) therapy helps patients achieve functional restoration to the injured neck musculature. When a patient is undergoing therapy, we are able to track and provide documentation of progress session by session. At the Center, you will be at the forefront of cervical care.

Contact our office today to inquire about MCU therapy for CCI.
