child stiff neck

My 5 year old grandson is experiencing a stiff neck, possibly from an injury at summer camp or stress over the fall.  His front teeth were compromised during the fall, with bleeding.
I feel he should see an orthopedic dr and a dentist . His mom took him to his primary dr and er for blood test to rule out cancer.  I was in the dental field for many years and know the baby teeth will fall out, but the there could be nerve damage.
At age 2 he did not want to go to preschool and experienced stiff necks from what I believe to have been stress.
after 2 weeks his neck is still painful and stiff.  He uses warm compresses on the neck area.  He is still active, but is smart enough to stop his activity. His neck is tweaked to one side and is very noticably sore.
i would love suggestions.  Thankyou
