Hi Chantelle
You can use the collar and see if it helps - it will help if there is muscle spasm causing even more stress on these nerve openings and it will support your neck. One should always try conservative treatment first before considering operations or invasive treatment.
However, if you see no improvement after a few weeks you may need to go for an opinion at an orthopedic surgeon.
