Non-Surgical Treatment of Slipped disc and osteoarthritis of Knee

Dr Hayden Clyde Pooke, is a chiropractor from South Africa, now settled in Malaysia and heading a chain of chiropractor clinics called TAGS. He gave an interesting talk on non-surgical management of slipped disc and osteoarthritis of the knees. After a brief introduction of his personal background, he provided an insight into the biomechanics of the spine and knee joints. He elaborated on a number of non- surgical options for these degenerative bone and joint disorders – braces, exercises, intra-joint injections and other pain-relieving therapies and cautioned that surgery should be the last resort after all other options have been exhausted.


Finding Jesselton

The story of the British North Borneo Company is a fascinating chapter in the history of Sabah. This chartered company bought over the rights to administer North Borneo, as Sabah was then known, from the Sultan of Sulu in the late 19 th century. Sir Charles Jessel, a wealthy financier was the Vice Chairman of the Company during this period. The first British settlement on the West Coast of North Borneo, at the site where the modern city of Kota Kinabalu now stands was named Jesselton in honour of Sir Charles. His great grandson and direct descendant, George Jessel embarked on a voyage of discovery to know greater details of pre-War North Borneo and has chronicled them in an attractive coffee-table book called “Finding Jesselton”. Mr. Jessel gave an interesting talk on his great grandfather and signed copies of his book for members who purchased them. President Ravi presented Mr. Jessel as memento, a framed photograph of the Club’s antique bell made in the early 1950s when it was called the Rotary Club of Jesselton.
