Brief Answer:
Surgery is necessary.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Please consult orthopedist with your problem. You need surgical stabilization of cervical spine. Otherwise the pain wont go away. It may also get worse if nothing wont be done. Please do not wait with it.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
