Nancy Lemire, D.C.


Dr. Nancy Lemire has been a licensed Chiropractor since 1991. She initially earned a Bachelor of Science B.S. in Nutrition with a minor in Physical Fitness from the University of Rhode Island. After graduation, she headed to California to work for her sister, also a Chiropractor. While working in her clinic as a front desk receptionist, she caught the “bug” and decided to go to Chiropractic college herself. While attending Palmer- West Chiropractic College, she met Dr. Brett, who was a few semesters ahead of her. Their common interests in running and biking as well as the sharing the demands of Chiropractic college, made their relationship enjoyable and lasting. Dr. Nancy graduated at the top of her class in 1990 and headed up to Sacramento to continue their life together. They married in 1992 and have 2 sons.

The Lemires have worked together now for over 30 years. They have consistently grown their practice to include other complementary and effective therapeutic services. The combination of their individual strengths has helped them create a health and wellness clinic that provides high quality care under one roof.

Dr. Nancy’s areas of focus include teaching postural awareness and correction, foam rolling for uprighting and limbering, corrective exercise and the use of cold lasers (low level light therapy) to promote reduction of pain, edema and inflammation and faster healing. She loves helping people feel, move and age better. Like Dr. Brett, she knows the importance of moving well and often throughout our lives to maintain health and wellness. She enjoys educating and motivating patients to take action.


Mark Lemire D.C.


Dr. Mark is a 1986 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic-West. The founding director of Universal Chiropractic in 1988, he specializes in family practice and sports injury and rehabilitation. As a former 9-time NCAA All-American and Hall of Fame swimmer, he utilizes his athletic experiences to better relate to and treat patients of all ages and his broad range knowledge base is essential to the evaluation and treatment of a vast array of injuries and dysfunctions of the neuromusculoskeletal system.
In 1997, Dr. Mark moved to north San Diego to continue in practice and spend time raising his 4 children. Fortunately for us, he returned in June 2020 to help Lemire Chiropractic Spine & Sport Inc better serve the Elk Grove/Sacramento region with high quality effective conservative care.

Dr. Mark is a true Renaissance man. In his free time, he enjoys wood work, gardening, cooking, playing the guitar and piano and riding his motorcycle.


Tanner Haislip D.C.


Dr. Tanner is a recent graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic West. Along with his doctorate in Chiropractic, he has completed additional training and certifications in ELDOA, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS), Joint Pumping, Fascial Manipulation and Functional Range Release (FR Training). Prior to attending Chiropractic College, Tanner studied and received his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology – Exercise Science from Fresno State.

Dr. Tanner is not far from home here in Elk Grove. He grew up on a horse ranch in Acampo, CA watching his parents compete in professional rodeo. He loves horses and is passionate about treating athletes, both equine and human! His passions stem from years of playing basketball, competing in rodeo and from watching his late mother treat animals as a veterinarian. Interestingly, he has been a patient of Dr. Brett’s for the last 18 years and has experienced first hand how the techniques used at Lemire Chiropractic have kept him healthy and able to compete at his best.

Dr. Tanner is driven to provide the best care to his patients, including his four-legged ones, through manual therapy techniques that address the underlying dysfunctions in the body that are manifesting in acute and chronic pain. His “tool kit” is diverse – including soft tissue techniques, chiropractic manipulations, fascial stretching and neuromuscular re-education. His educational journey continues as he plans to study further in equine chiropractic and correlations between the musculoskeletal dysfunctions in riders and how they translate into musculoskeletal dysfunctions of horses.
