Doc Moreno Merica

"After high-school graduation I joined the USAF to be in the dental field and eventually attend Dental School. Following my honorable discharge in 2001, after nearly 5 years of service, the tragedy on 9/11 took place. I felt the need as many Americans did to serve my country again. Following my first tour I injured my shoulder and had it surgically repaired. The post-op did not go as smooth as expected, and my military career was in jeopardy.  I soon discovered myofascial release/Active Release Technique. I was educated, physically helped, and given the tools to help myself prevent further injury. I knew at this point what I wanted to do in life. Now with more than 20 years of military service, I've been able to serve my country proudly, and provide the highest quality care to the Quad Cities area"

Integrative Diagnosis is a complete and detailed system for diagnosis and treatment of muscle, nerve and joint problems. As a patient, you will receive a diagnosis that includes the exact tissue and pathology that is responsible for your problem and a treatment plan that includes: Manual Therapy, Exercise and Load Management.


The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is a series of 7 full-body movement tests designed to assess fundamental patterns of movement such as bending and squatting in those with known musculoskeletal pain. When the clinical assessment is initiated from the perspective of the movement pattern, we have the opportunity to identify meaningful impairments that may be seemingly unrelated to the main musculoskeletal complaint, but contribute to the associated disability.


FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.
