In brief: Still is trauma

Glad she did not hit her head.
Being knpcked backwards can still cause trauma. She may be manifesting a deep bruise on her shoulder and the neck pain would not be unexpected...You can try homeopathic arnica and see her doc if the neck pain persists. I am a fan of chiropractors and craniosacral therapy in cases like this as well.
