In brief: They Should

Anyone with suspected or known cervical spine fracture needs to see a doctor immediately, as some fractures are not stable and can result in paralysis or death.
Spine fractures should be treated by a orthopedic spine surgeon or qualified neurosurgeon.

In brief: Yes

Unfortunately, cervical fractures are commonly seen in trauma centers.
Many heal with wearing a collar. Some require surgical stabilization.
