Dr. Linzey believes in the art, philosophy, and science which is Chiropractic through the idea that humans are spiritual beings whose lives are directed by universal laws including the natural, vitalistic, innate ability to develop, heal and adapt as long
Meet Dr. Kevin Linzey:
Dr. Linzey graduated from Miramonte High School in Orinda, Ca. From there, Dr. Linzey went on to UC Davis where he graduated in 1997 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Human Development. Inspired to change lives through Chiropractic, he returned to school at Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, GA, graduating in 2009 with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Currently, Dr. Kevin is the Head Coach and Chiropractor for the University of San Francisco Men’s Rugby Club. During his time at UC Davis, Dr. Linzey was a four-year member of the UC Davis football program. After his football career at UC Davis, he pursued a rugby career with UC Davis’ Final Four Rugby Team. After an incredibly successful rookie year, Dr. Linzey was selected to be a part or the US 7’s National Rugby team. Dr. Linzey represented the U.S. from ’98 to ’02. In that time he travelled the world enjoying new experiences and new cultures. Stemming back to an neck injury during his football career 7 years earlier, Dr. Linzey consistently battled neck pain throughout his rugby career. With no relief and no answers from the medical community, Dr. Linzey was forced to end his career in athletics due to unrelenting pain and an inability to perform. It was eventually a team-mate who was also a Chiropractor that introduced Dr. Linzey to Chiropractic. After achieving life-changing results through Chiropractic Care, including returning to his athletic career, Dr. Linzey was inspired to help people through Chiropractic himself. After more than 10 years away from the California Bay Area, Dr. Linzey has arrived home with a new purpose and passion to serve his community through Chiropractic. Dr. Linzey is known for using the most advanced, effective and gentle chiropractic techniques. With his advanced system of patient care, he achieves superior results for his patients even in the most chronic and difficult cases when often other methods of treatment have failed. His focus is pain relief, optimal performance and the highest quality of Life. Dr. Linzey believes in the art, philosophy, and science which is Chiropractic through the idea that humans are spiritual beings whose lives are directed by universal laws including the natural, vitalistic, innate ability to develop, heal and adapt as long as the body is kept free of interferences.

Wednesday Wellness: Quinoa Kale Pomegrante Salad Receipe
This can serve as an anytime easy recipe to please those who are gluten free eaters and will also be satisfying for those who do eat gluten
EASY QUINOA RECIPE 2 WAYS…
If you are making this dish for Thanksgiving you can certainly stuff your turkey with it (and feel free to add a few extra handfuls of raw kale if you decide to go this route), but it is also perfect served as pilaf-style side dish.
A SUPER BURST OF NUTRITION
“Superfoods” don’t always contribute as much in flavor to a recipe as they do nutrition. But in this case three featured superfoods—kale, quinoa and pomegranate —add interest and depth of flavor in addition to stellar health benefits. You’ll have to taste the dish to believe how good it is, but here’s what makes the three superfoods so super…
• KALE: This dark green wonder veggie is great for detoxifying your body. It also increases “good” HDL cholesterol (that’s the beneficial type of cholesterol that actually helps sweep your arteries clean) and simultaneously decreases “bad” LDL cholesterol. Kale is also an excellent dairy-free (and therefore very “clean”) source of calcium.
• POMEGRANATE: Tops among the super potent antioxidant rich foods, carpaccio-red pomegranates have three times the antioxidant power of red wine and green tea in addition to anti-inflammatory compounds, potassium, and vitamin C. If pomegranates intimidate you, check out Cooking Techniques for a super easy step by step guide for just how to do it!
• QUINOA: Containing a wide array of nutrients including calcium, antioxidant vitamin E, potassium, lysine, and magnesium, this gluten-free grain serves double duty as super “clean food” source of protein. Quinoa is also particularly rich in iron—1/2 cup contains almost 8 mg, way more than any other type of cereal grain, and a robust 5 grams of tummy-filling fiber. A little less well known is that quinoa is a prebiotic (meaning it stimulates the growth of probiotics or good bacteria already found in your gut).
HOW TO COOK QUINOA
Before you start cooking you should know the easiest way to cook quinoa is in a rice cooker. No worries if you don’t have a rice cooker quinoa can also be made quickly and easily on the stovetop. To cook your quinoa in a rice cooker, simply measure one part quinoa to two parts water,(or some type of stock for added flavor) cover and cook for about 20 minutes.
Note: unless it says so on the box you’ll want to rinse quinoa with water before cooking to remove bitter coating.
Easy Quinoa Recipe with Kale and Pomegranate Seeds
• 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
• 6 cloves garlic, finely sliced, divided
• 1/2 cup organic vegetable stock (such as Pacific Natural Foods brand)
• 1/2 pounds young kale, stems and leaves coarsely chopped
• Unrefined sea salt, to taste
• White pepper, to taste
• 1 1/2 cups raw pecans
• 1 cup finely chopped onion
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
• 1 tablespoon fresh thyme (strip the leaves from the stem)
• 2 cups cooked quinoa
• 1 tablespoon organic pastured butter
• 1 organic, pastured egg, lightly beaten
• 3/4 cup dry white wine
• 3/4 cup fresh pomegranate seeds
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly oil a 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish.
2. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Add half of the garlic and cook until soft but not golden. Raise heat to high, add the stock and kale and toss to combine. Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking, stirring until all the liquid has evaporated. Season with salt and white pepper. Set aside to cool.
3. Add cooled, cooked kale and pecans to a food processor; pulse several times until pecans are chopped and kale is shredded but mixture is still chunky.
4. In a separate saucepan over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil; add the onion and remaining garlic; sauté 2-3 minutes. Add the sage and thyme and continue cooking until onion is caramelized, approximately 3 to 4 more minutes. Stir in the pecan-kale mixture. STOP HERE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO ADD THE QUINOA AND WANT A VEGGIE-ONLY SIDE DISH.
5. Transfer the onion-kale-pecan mixture to a large bowl. Add the cooked quinoa and stir to combine. Stir in the remaining tablespoon of oil and melted butter. Season with salt and white pepper to taste. Add the egg and wine and toss to coat. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Cover and bake 30 minutes. Garnish with pomegranate seeds just before serving.

" I've had an issue with my back/neck for about 17 years since I had a car accident. I've had multiple courses of physio and 1 previous course of chiro. None of the previous treatment I had made a significant difference. Dr. Kevin Linzey's treatment removed the constant pain that I was experience on a daily basis. For the first time I'm regularly forgetting that I have a problem in my neck. If you want serious results quickly go to Performance Chiro and see Dr. Kevin Linzey."

"I started coming here since November of 2013 after 6 years at Latch, So, and Hipp Chiropractic. I'm glad I made the switch over to Performance Chiropractic and to Dr. Linzey. I met Dr. Linzey at Latch So and Hipp, and he bounced around to Alas and finally ended up at Performance.
Dr. Linzey cares so much about his patients, and I feel 3x better after he adjusts me than with Latch So and Hipp. He just uses proper adjustment techniques that were taught at Chiropractic school. If you were looking to get Chiropractic treatment then I would recommend you see Dr. Linzey."

Topic Thursdays: What is Osteoarthritis?
Living with Osteoarthritis
For decades, osteoarthritis has been considered a part of aging. But not anymore. Recent research points out that older people don’t have to suffer from osteoarthritic pain. And, surprisingly, people much younger than 65 can develop osteoarthritis.
What Is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis (OA), or degenerative joint disease, affects more than 20 million Americans and is more common in women than in men. The disease affects the cartilage—slippery tissue on the ends of bones that meet in a joint. Normally, cartilage helps bones glide over one another. In an OA patient, however, the cartilage is broken down and eventually wears away.
As a result, instead of gliding, bones rub against each other, causing pain, swelling, and loss of motion.1 Although the majority of patients with OA are 65 and older, recent research shows that osteoarthritis is not a by-product of aging. Family history of OA, being overweight, lack of exercise, and prior joint injuries are suggested as OA risk factors.
How Is Osteoarthritis Diagnosed?
OA is diagnosed through a combination of clinical history, patient examination, and x-rays. Other tests, such as drawing fluid from the joint, are sometimes used.
The signs of OA include:
Steady or intermittent joint pain
Joint stiffness after sitting, sleeping, or otherwise not moving for a long time
Swelling or tenderness in the joints
A crunching feeling or the sound of bones rubbing against each other.
If you experience any of these signs, consult your health care provider. While the diagnosis is relatively easy to make, it is often harder to establish whether or not OA causes the patient’s symptoms. That’s why the treating doctor needs to not only make the diagnosis, but also rule out other disorders and conditions that can make the symptoms worse.1 Timely diagnosis and treatment can help manage pain, improve function, and slow the degeneration.
Should Osteoarthritis Patients Exercise?
Exercise is one of the best forms of OA treatment— and prevention. It strengthens the muscular support around the joints and improves and maintains joint mobility and function. In addition, exercise helps control weight and improves the patient’s mood and outlook— important factors influencing the severity of the symptoms.
If you suffer from OA, consider the following exercise tips:
Low-impact or non-weight-bearing activities, such as walking, stationary training, and light weight training work best for OA patients.
Use strengthening exercises if the key muscle groups that relate to the function of the joints are weakened by the degeneration.
If you are overweight, start exercising carefully, so as not to put too much stress on the knee and ankle joints.
Stair climbing, water aerobics, Theraband workouts, and similar exercises will help to keep the joints mobile without straining them.
Learn to read the body’s signals and know when to stop, slow down, or rest.
How Can Your Chiropractor Help?
Doctors of chiropractic, by the nature of their work, can detect the earliest degenerative changes in the joints. They see the impact of degenerative changes in the spine, as well as in the hips, knees, and other weight-bearing joints. Doctors of chiropractic are also trained to relieve the pain and improve joint function through natural therapies, such as chiropractic manipulation, trigger-point therapy, or some massage techniques.
Doctors of chiropractic can provide exercise counseling, helping you choose exercises that are best for you. If a sore or swollen joint prevents you from exercising, talk to your doctor of chiropractic about other drug-free pain-relief options, such as applying heat or cold to the affected area. In addition, your doctor of chiropractic can help you choose proper supplements that play important roles in OA prevention and treatment.

"Dr. Linzey is particularly attentive and LISTENS carefully. Besides being very "chiropractically" skilled he is also intuitively skilled. I am able to count on him time and again for consistent results. It is not surprising that other chiropractors seek him out for their adjustments. Highly recommended. I have been a client of his on a regular basis for about two years."

"Just had a second session of adjustments with Dr. kevin. Really nice and sincere guy with a great bedside manner.
Just a few hours he helped me out with a tweaked / strained neck sustained while stepping off a curb!! and i already feel 90% better. He was able to locate my issue right away and realign me so that i can move freely again for the 1st time in a couple of weeks.
I have been visited a lot of chiropractors over the years and Dr kevin gets top marks.
I highly recommend him"

"Dr. Kevin Linzey is truly talented and passionate about his work. His technique is ironclad. I always seem to feel uneasy with other chiropractors and it throws off my adjustments. But Dr Linzey is fast, swift and very accurate in his assessing my mal-alignments. As a personal trainer, I am always concerned with who handles my body and I can say with confidence that Dr Linzey is worth visiting."
