In brief: A range of options.
A pinched nerve is first treated with rest, physical therapy, and medications.
Those that do not get better over time may need an evaluation by a pain specialist for blocks (injections) to the cervical spine to help control the pain. Only in a few cases is surgery needed. There are various surgical procedures available for a pinched nerve depending on the findings on an mri.

In brief: Talk to MD
This can be treated either conservatively or with anything up to surgery.
First talk to pcp and try nsaids and rest. If this doesn't work consult pain doctor or spine surgeon to investigate options.
