In brief: Depends on location
Fractures of the cervical spine are the result of severe trauma to the neck and treatment varies with the location of the fracture in the vertebra; the presence or absence of injury to other structures especially the spinal cord.
These need a complete evaluation including cat scans; dynamic films etc before any treatment can be decided.
