Dr. Josh Lamaro is an osteopath, a therapist who treats patients in a non-invasive manner with a focus on a holistic approach to body health by means of strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. He’s worked in Bendigo for over 9 years. He promotes the idea of treating the whole body as a unit and considers the lifestyles and various stressors of the individual before recommending a procedure.
