When you’re playing sports, there are certain rewards that come with it such as a great workout, fun and playful competitiveness. Sports can also come with risks, like falling and hitting your head. 

While participating in sports, if you hit your head and have pain, loss of consciousness or nausea, not only should you stop the sport immediately, you should also seek medical treatment. In the video below, Dr. Nicholas Dodaro, chief medical director at GuideWell Emergency Doctors, goes into more detail about head injuries, symptoms and what to do.
