Praxis für Physiotherapie und osteopathische Techniken


´Life is movement, life without movement is unthinkable.` Moshe Feldenkrais

Movement impairment or pain is often the first sign of an underlying dysfunctional problem.  Our diagnosis and treatment techniques serve to resolve the cause of the body`s problems to ensure successful treatment results.

We warmly welcome you to our Practice in the middle of Siegburg.  The treatment rooms are light, spacious, air-conditioned, and wheelchair friendly with an elevator for easy access.  Our friendly team consists of five fully qualified Physiotherapists.  Gunda Lambrecht is a member of the Bundesverband Osteopatie e.V. (bvo).  Therefore some insurance companies will help cover the cost of osteopathy treatment.

Gunda Lambrecht

Since 1992, Gunda Lambrecht has worked in her own private practice as a physiotherapist and specialist for osteopathic techniques.  Together with her experienced team, she specialises in the treatment of all orthopaedic, paediatric, neurological and temporomandibular conditions.  Mrs Lambrecht holds a Diploma in Physiotherapy and additional Postgraduate Certificates in Manual Therapy and Bobath Therapy.  She finished the intensive five-year osteopathy course to receive her certificate in 2002. 2014 she finished her two years course in osteopathic techniques for babies and children. 2016 Mrs Lambrecht received her certificate in Life Kinetik Training.

Since 2000 Mrs Lambrecht has worked free-lance for the European Space Agency (ESA).  Her responsibilities include developing and implementing all the physiotherapy programmes for the European astronauts.  Mrs Lambrecht is instrumental in all the fitness and rehabilitation programmes before, during and after the long-duration flights.  Since 2006 she has been involved in all European long-duration missions including the Astolab mission with Thomas Reiter, volare with Luca Parmitano, or blue dot with Alexander Gerst.  Gunda Lambrecht continually develops new physiotherapeutic techniques and treatment strategies to minimise the effect of zero gravity on the human body.  She has presented these findings at many international conventions.

In co-operation with Prof. Dr. Julie Hides from the University of Queensland, Gunda Lambrecht planned, organised and conducted a rehabilitation study in conjunction with the second Berlin Bed Rest Study.  She published the results together with Prof. Dr Julie under:

Effects of motor control re-training and general trunk strengthening on trunk muscle size after 60 days bed-rest. Eur Spine J. 2011 May; 20(5): 808–818. Published online 2010 Jul 1. doi: 10.1007/s00586-010-1491-x

Furthermore, she is involved as co-author in following publications:

Changes in multifiduus muscle size in response to microgravity: Possible implications for low back pain and muscle imbalance research (Hides JA PhD1, Lambrecht G (Physiotherapist) 2,3, Stanton WR PhD1, Damann V MD4) Eur Spine J. 2015 Nov 18.
