Head injury, cut lip, jaw and face hurting, ear pain, teeth do not feel aligned. What do we do?

My daughter is a field hockey goalie and in her game tonight, she was hit in the head/helmet. Her helmet shifted and she was hit. Cut her lip but thought everything else was fine until she pushed her helmet back on correctly. Said that her jaw/face hurt. She says she has some pain back by her ear on that side and that her teeth don t feel aligned normally. What she we do?

DEAR FRIEND ,
NO NEED TO WORRY IT IS MINOR CONCUSSION IT WILL GO ON ITS OWN . IF HEADACHE VOMITINS OR SEIZURES OCCUR THEN SHE MAY REQUIRE CT HEAD. FOR MALALIGNED TEETH SEE A MAXILOFACIAL SURGEON OR PLASTIC SURGEON

Hi,

Welcome to Helathcaremagic.

Based on the symptoms your daughter has , I suspect there to be mild dislocation in the Tempromandibular joint (jaw joint).

I suggest you to take her to a GP who can examine and ascertain the fact.Later may refer to a Oromaxillofacial surgeon who can deal it there is a unreducable deformity.

Wish you good health.
