Varies: So, essentially you have a "pinched nerve" in the neck. Mild cases may respond to medication and rest; moderate cases traction with physical therapy; severe usually get an MRI and then epidural steroid injections or surgery.

Neck pain: neck pain that radiaties into the fingers should be evaluated by an orthopedic spine surgeon or neurosurgeon. Physical therapy with anti inflamitory medications may help. the next step may be an epidural steriod injection
