"Dr. Shannon Bauman runs a concussion clinic in Barrie, Ont. Her fees are covered through the Ontario health plan, but she also works with physiotherapists and other practitioners who charge private fees. She does not support the use of baseline testing and insists that concussion management must be overseen by a medical doctor."
Dr. Shannon Bauman presented her research on the gender differences in clinical presentation and recovery of sports-related concussions at the 5th International Conensus Conference on Concussion in Sport in Berlin, Germany
Health.com "In a recent study of 207 male and female athletes at a concussion specialty clinic in Ontario, the clinic’s medical director, Shannon Bauman, MD, found that women didn’t just report more symptoms of concussion post-injury but also had more objective signs (according to a physical exam and their medical histories), such as migraine and trouble maintaining balance."
