I had a collision about 6 weeks ago where someone skated backwards into me and knocked me back onto the ice. My head went back, hit the ice, and I just sat there for a minute or so thinking 'hmm, I wonder if that will be a concussion?' But I felt fine, no dizziness or anything.
The next morning when I woke up I realized that while my head didn't hurt, my neck did. The muscles on either side of my neck were strained when my head went back. It took about 5-6 days for it to go away completely.
Your collision sounds a bit harder than mine, I'd probably see a dr - and be watching for signs of a concussion. I was watching for them as well and more importantly, I warned my husband that if I started acting 'off' in any way, to take me to the dr.
