Doctors & Staff

Dr. Brandon M. Tanner

It is our mission at Wellness First Chiropractic to provide superior chiropractic services. Dr. Brandon M. Tanner has trained extensively across the nation to master the Blair upper cervical Technique. Dr. Tanner is one of only two Blair chiropractic doctors in South Carolina.

Upper Cervical care is in high demand. Currently, there are less t

han one hundred Blair upper cervical doctors in the world. The Blair technique takes into consideration that no two human spines are exactly alike and; therefore, a specific different correction for each person is necessary. With the use of an x-ray system like no other, the Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractor can give a custom designed adjustment for each patient. This results in a procedure that is safe for all ages and absolutely no need of the common twisting and popping usually associated with chiropractic adjustments. Many of our patients have reported they wasted time going from doctor to doctor, wasted money on medications, and received no real answers before coming to Wellness First Chiropractic. Our patients boast of superior long term results with less visits. The care from Wellness First Chiropractic and the upper cervical Blair Technique succeeds where other standard techniques fail.

Dr. Brandon M. Tanner graduated from Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic in 2004. He had the privilege of studying under Dr. Michael Lenarz, founder of multiple Health First Chiropractic clinics in the Seattle, WA area. Together, Dr. Tanner and Dr. Lenarz opened Health First of Marysville in Marysville, WA to serve and meet the growing demands for the Blair upper cervical chiropractic technique. Commited to the Blair Upper Cervical chiropractic technique, Dr. Tanner founded Greenville’s first Blair upper cervical chiropractic office with the vision to provide gentle and specific chiropractic care in Greenville and throughout the Upstate area.
