In brief: See neurosurgeon

See neurosurgeon for further workup and surgical stabilization if the malalignment is confirmed to be causing your neck pain.

In brief: C2-3 alignment

The first question is understanding what you mean by misalignment.
Are we talking about positional alignment, such as described by a chiropractor, or true anatomical subluxation, known as a spondylolisthesis. If the latter, it should be evaluated in light of your symptoms to see if it requires treatment or observation and conservative management.
