Head injury, mild headache, stiff neck. Normal symptoms due to fall?

Hi, I m a 56 year old female and I fell off a ladder yesterday and landed on my back hitting my head on the grass. I did not lose consciousness but had a mild headache the rest of the day. This morning I have a very stiff neck on all sides. Could this be a normal consequence of my fall yesterday? Anything to be worried about? Thank You for your time.

dear cammyrose,
You are right that the stiffness is due to your fall- muscle spasm. you can do hot fomentation and then apply any pain reducing gel on the area. It will be advisable that you consult orthopaedician for expert advice.
Thanks and wish you for a speedy recovery.
