Kids: Head and Neck Injuries |

Dr. Ligio Tavarez, Pediatric Emergency Physician with Baptist Children’s Hospital, explains it is important to take the kid to the doctor after a head or neck injury if there is loss of consciousness, if they are talking nonsense or repeating themselves, if parents see change in behavior, and if there is repeated vomiting.

Other signs are: crying won’t stop, complains of head and neck pain, vomiting more than once, the child won’t awaken easily, becomes hard to console, and isn’t walking or talking normally.
