I started going to Dr. Solomon back in April after I was hospitalized for extreme TMJ pain. I have a rare genetic condition that causes hypermobility in my body and my temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the worst areas that’s affected. I was seeing a specialist out in Ohio, but that just got worse and worse until I ended up in the hospital. I found out about Dr. Solomon right before I ended up in the hospital, so when I was hospitalized, my mom called to see if he had any advice to bring down the pain. Dr. Solomon spent time on the phone with my mom giving her tips (that actually worked and helped)…not a lot of doctors go the extra mile to do that! He and the staff are so friendly and really take the time to hear what’s going on and to try and understand so they can help. I started my TMJ treatment with an orthotic piece that Dr. Solomon had made for me. Minor adjustments followed, but because my jaw is so hypermobile and sensitive, it’s taken us a little longer than the average person to get my jaw into a good position. This last adjustment I had (yesterday), actually helped a lot and by the time I left his office, my 4-month long headache had subsided (not completely, but a significant amount)! What I appreciate most about the staff at this office is that they have such a big heart for their patients and are willing to do whatever it takes to make our quality of life better. I’m so grateful to them for that! You won’t regret going to them if you keep the communication open and do your part as a patient!
