Voted # 1 CHIROPRACTORS in Sussex County!

best of sussex county


Drs. Andrew and Michael Grano, founders of Advanced Medical and Wellness (formerly Grano Pain Relief and Wellness) are licensed chiropractors serving the Hamburg an Newton communities.   As chiropractors with experience, the Grano brothers are committed to promoting optimal health and the well being of their patients.  

The doctors use a "whole person approach". This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function including exercise, nutrition, and healthy dieting. Using this unique approach, Drs. Andrew and Michael Grano are able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.

The doctors are experts in a wide variety of treatments from different conservative manipulative techniques to more advanced training in sports medicine, decompression therapy, and special certification in Manipulation Under Anesthesia(MUA). This allows the Grano brothers to care for families, athletes, old and young, with mild to severe injuries and conditions.

Since opening their doors, they have expanded their team to include additional chiropractors, a nurse practitioner, and massage therapists.  Helping  their patients with holistic approaches to wellness and pain management has always been their focus.   As they say, "we treat the cause, not the symptom."
