Our office is not your typical chiropractic office in that we treat not only the joint component of injuries, but we also treat the soft tissues, scar tissue, and adhesions in the soft tissues that contribute to pain a lot of the time.
Although bones can sometimes be misaligned or even fractured, the most commonly injured structures are the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, and ligaments). Tendons attach muscles to bones, and ligaments attach one bone to another. When these injuries happen, the bodies natural way to deal with soft tissue injuries is to lay down scar tissue (adhesion) and adhere soft tissue structures together thus creating more load for other structures. This creates more dysfunction, injury, weakness and scar tissue to form until the body has no other structures to load and starts to produce pain.
Dr. Moreno has been certified in soft tissue techniques such as Integrative Diagnosis and Active Release Techniques (ART) Soft Tissue Treatment for 10 years. He is also one of the only doctors specializing in soft tissue treatment and biomechanical assessment in the Quad Cities.
