Hi, with such presentations in my clinic, I would suggest the patient surgery for anterior decomprression with fusion of the cervical vertebra, since there has been a fracture with possibly instability that may worsen and cause further damage to your health. Please let me know if you have further questions before meeting your primary care Doctor.
