Dinner meeting: Rtn Dr William Yam on the management of lower back pain

We had two programmes at our 18 March dinner meeting. The first speaker was our own Rtn Dr. William Yam, who spoke about ā€œProper sitting and Lifting as Related to the Management of Lower Back Pain Syndrome.ā€ The definition of good posture is that of muscular and skeletal balance that protects the supporting structure of the body against injury by (1) maintaining the natural curvature of the spinal column (2) minimizing the muscle activities of related areas (3) minimizing the disc pressure of the lumbar spine. Everyone listening shifted in their seats accordingly.

PP Kenneth Wong and the GSE Team gave samples of the presentations they will give in Brazil. The GSE team is: Yolander, Joe, Glos and Pauline; they will visit Brazil in May
2010 and return to Hong Kong in June. In exchange, the Brazil GSE team will visit our District in April; if anyone is available to house any of the Brazilian members during their stay, please alert PP Kenneth.
