Severe neck pain

Severe neck pain when I rotate my head in any direction. The pain stretches from lower neck ( where it is connected to shoulders) to upper neck ( connected to the head). I've had this for 4 years. I went to physiotherapy and the physiotherapist did nothing. He just diagnosed me for neck strain and did stretching for traction. I also have mild lower pack pain if that also counts. I took an x-ray of cervical spine , report came saying " Cervical stump on the right side". Please find the attachments
