If you're falling backwards frequently, you may want to get your skates profiled a bit more on your toes.
Last night I took a hard fall for the first time in forever, skates got kicked out racing for a puck and went into the boards feet first on my back. Luckily I tucked my head a bit so when my head hit the ice it wasn't so bad and avoided a concussion.
The only other time I went head first was a few years ago getting slew footed and got a bad case of whiplash that required physical therapy. Don't know what would have helped in that case.
