He must immediately consult with a spine specialist often a neurosurgeon or an orthopedic surgeon who is experienced in spine disorders. Meanwhile care must be taken not to move the neck, with the help of rigid collar or a Philadelphia collar. Management depends upon the extent of injury, which can vary from simple neck traction to a decompression or stabilization surgery.
