Essential Steps to Take After a Head Injury

Head injuries in kids are unpredictable, so it's important to seek pediatric urgent care right away, even if your child says that he or she feels fine. Watch this video for more advice on what to do if your child experiences a head injury.

If your child's head injury occurs while playing sports, he or she should leave the game immediately. If your child loses consciousness, has trouble walking, is confused, or has slurred speech, he or she needs emergency pediatric care. Even if your child appears to be fine, go to an urgent care facility so that he or she can be evaluated.

Pediatrics After Hours provides urgent care for kids in four locations across the DFW area and can provide the treatment and the peace of mind you need when your child is sick or injured. Find a location near you by calling (214) 363-7242.
