Any position that you can assume to reduce the pain is generally beneficial. “Proper alignment” of the neck causing pain means that there is something compressing the nerve which causes you to develop an antalgic posture (posture to prevent pain) and that is OK. I assume the physical examination did not lead to evidence of any specific nerve root involvement.
