Suggest Treatment For Herniated Cervical Disc

My doctor indicated I tested positive for Spurling s test and gave a diagnosis of herniated cervical disc. However, reproduction of symptoms occurred with cervical rotation and flexion to contralateral side, not ipsalateral. Is reproduction of symptoms with cervical rotation/flexion to contralateral side indicative of a herniated cervical disc?
