As you have shoulder and neck pain, I will advise looking for an MRI of the cervical spine. As there will be a sign of cord compression but at which level is need to be understood by use of MRI.

For now, use the soft cervical collar and do hot water fermentation. Wait for a week or so.

See how it works. If pain reduces with Ultracet and soft cervical collar than start slow exercise for the neck and shoulder. By 4 weeks of time, you should have no pain.

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

Take care
