Thank you for posting your query.
Initial treatment in your case is always without surgery.
This includes physiotherapy such as neck and back extension exercises, IFT, ultrasound, traction, etc.
Medications such as pregabalin or gabapentin would also help in reducing pain.
In addition, please avoid forward bending and lifting heavy weights.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
