rotated/twisted vertabra (c2?)

Hi there, I am 19 years old and fell backward off my skateboard at about 40kph(fairly slow by the usual standards). I landed with full force on the base of my neck/shoulderblades. This happened about 7 months ago and over the last three months I noticed restricted neck and shoulder movement, back pain and aching as well as stiff shoulder muscles. After having a closer look/feel around by my GP and my mum (studying nursing, always bandaging me up....) it seems that one of my vertabra has twisted/rotated about 40°toward my right shoulder. I can't afford treatment or examination right now so I'm wondering if there are any exercises that I can do at home to help bring it back to it's normal position? How serious an injury is this and is it likely to worsen if left unchecked?
