In brief: Cervical radiculopat

Most cases will resolve in 4-6wks regardless of what you do. But it'll be longest 4-6wks of life. Physical therapy is only treatment that has Grade A evidence. Everything else is Grade C or worse. Traction is considered experimental but may be of use if supervised by PT. Warning signs include weakness & loss of function.
