Thank you for your question.

To treat the symptom of pain you can try

1 Analgesics like ibuprofen, naproxen, tramadol.
2 Physical therapy will be helpful in your case for muscle relaxation and strengthening.
3 Use of soft cervical collar when the pain is unbearable.
4 Pain management specialists can do local injections for lasting pain relief.

It would also be helpful if you can describe the MRI report or upload images for review.

Wish you the best and let me know if I can be of further help.
