Pain

Hey there.

My wife has quite a severe pain on the right side of her neck. I know some oerthopaedic tests, so there are the results:

Cervical Kemp's - positive on right side with sharp pain
Spurling's and Jackson's both positive
Tenderness in Erector Spinae, Levator Scapula, Scalene and Trapezius.
passive and active ranges of motion were limited by 25% in flexion, pulling sensation in the upper back and 50% in extension, right rotation and right lateral flexion due to sharp pain.

What do you think is the problem? Is it nerve root compression? Which nerve, then? And what would be the best course of treatment?

Thanks!
