Each year, an estimated 1.5 million Americans sustain a TBI. As a result of these injuries, 50,000 people die, 230,000 people are hospitalized and survive, and an estimated 80,000-90,000 people experience the onset of long-term disability.17 Population based studies in the United States suggested that incidence of traumatic brain injury is between 180-250/100,000 population per year.12 In Europe, from studies in six countries, an aggregate hospitalized plus fatal TBI incidence rate of about 235 per 100,000 was

INTRODUCTION: Bronchogenic carcinoma is the most common malignancy in the world, accounting for 7% of all deaths in men and women. It is the leading cause of death in industrialized countries and also rising at alarming rates in developing countries. In Pakistan cancer of the lung has been ranked the most frequent malignancy in men in Karachi in the entire 1995- 2002 period. In the 1998-2002 period the incidence rate increased to 25.5 per 100,000 (males) and 4.2 per 100,000 (females). Extensive epidemiologic data clearly establish cigarette smoking as the major cause of lung cancer.
EFFICACY OF MANUAL THERAPY IN TREATMENT OF MECHANICAL NECK PAIN Introduction Everybody once in their life feel some kind of neck pain. Neck pain is one the potential disabling condition which has a high chance of relapsing. Recent research found that neck pain is one of the top five leading causes for disability (Cohen, 2015). It also found that more than 30% of the global population suffers from this condition. The prevalence of chronic neck pain is similar in developed as well as developing countries with women being affected more than men (Tsang, et al., 2008).
INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary diseases are increasingly important causes of morbidity and mortality in the modern world. The COPD is the most common chronic lung diseases, and are a major cause of lung-related death and disability.1 Pulmonary rehabilitation has emerged as a recommended standard of care for patients with chronic lung disease based on a growing body of scientific evidence.There is growing evidence that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has systemic consequences, including a syndrome of skeletal muscle dysfunction.1Exercise training has long been advocated as a useful rehabilitative strategy for this patient population.8 More recently, high-frequency neuromuscular electrical stimulation (hf-NMES) has been successfully used
Cardiovascular diseases are the worldwide health care issue representing 30% of mortalities. Heart valve diseases are life threatening affecting ~2.5% of the general population in economically developed countries (V.T. Nkomo et al. 2006).

Although, it is not uncommon for older teenage women to attempt suicide, “Suicide mortality increases considerably in the late teens and continues into the early twenties for both males and females.
