Neck injury head numbness

A student of mine incurred an injury during a rugby game this morning  She was hit, described the hit as occuring on the top of her head.  After the incident, she felt much neck pain, and the left side of her head felt numb.  The numbness persisted saeveral hours later.  She was examined briefly by an intern in training who diagnosed this as neck sprine, but who did not investigate the head numbness.  Can you help?

Hi,

How are you?
Head numbness and muscle weakness can occur after traumatic head injury due to impact of the injury.
Does she have any neurological symptoms like difficulty in speech, dizziness, mental confusion and loss of balance. I would suggest you to ask her to apply some ice packs on the head and take OTC pain killers for pain. The head numbness should improve after a few days time.
If it persists or if she develops other symptoms please get a reevaluation done.
Take care!
