You say it is moderate! / pain much less now - so take it easy! Do NOT worry
You have not mentioned your age and gender - that may modify the decisions!
If there is no pressure on the nerves or the spinal cord - you don't seem to have - there is no cause for concern
You are on the right track - Physiotherapy, posture and yoga
Good luck

you are already having the best measures that can be taken for improvement. physiotherapy twice a week will be more helpful. cervical collar keeps your cervical spine in position especially while working

General & Family Physician Dr. Md Iftakhar's  Response
The treatment for cervical spondylosis depends mainly upon the sign and symptoms of the patient.
It can vary from simple physical therapy in the form of excercise and massage therapy to taking pain killer drugs to kill the pain and ultimately to surgery.
Now it is important to make the correct choice depending upon the symptom and its severity. If it is not that much severe than it is good that you continue with the physio and yoga under the monitoring of a physiotherapist and can have some pain killers depending on requirement. But is symptom is severe and not imporving with all this than you may require surgery to get over this problem.
Thanks and take care.
