Diffusal Annular Bulge in C5/C6 Causing minimal Thecal sac compression

I have been suffering from neck problems for a while.I used to sit with the forward head posture so that gave me problems.
Now when i sit without support i get pain at the point where the spine joins with the neck.Its not a chronic pain but i cannot sit properly ,its also makes my shoulder muscles tight.Its like when i pluck on the central part of the shoulder i can feel the pain.

So now i have taken an MRI it shows Diffusal Annular Bulge in C5/C6 Causing minimal Thecal sac compression

Seen the doctor he recommended Neck Traction.Is this good? Are there any exercises/postures that i need to avoid to prevent the worsening of the current situation.

Please help
