Episode 18 – Head Injuries in Children: When It’s Time to See the Doctor
Head injuries are common in children and teens. They can be mild, like a bump on the head, or more serious, like a concussion. It can be hard to tell the difference between a mild head injury and one that is more severe.
Head injuries are more common in the spring and summer months, when children are active in outdoor activities and playing sports. Parents and children alike are excited about the return of youth sports after a hiatus due to the pandemic.
