Hello,

I think you should opt for a physiotherapist who can help him reduce the pain with therapeutic ultrasound therapy and TENS therapy. Also, teach exercise to improve muscle strength. The cervical collar will be good to avoid compression.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
