Tonawanda Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues around the world. Tonawanda hip fracture risk is impacted adversely by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation constantly keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes our Tonawanda osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Tonawanda OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE

As easy as it seems, just figuring out who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to avoid a hip fracture is sometimes difficult! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research data regarding the efficacy of screening the general population reported that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is watchful of at-risk Tonawanda osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Tonawanda OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated matters including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some pharmaceutical products are described as changing bone structure and impact the risk of fragility hip fractures. These drugs were significantly associated with these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the subject: antiparkinsonian drugs, antidepressants, anxiolytic drugs, antipsychotic drugs, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, H2 antagonists, and thyroid hormone.  One drug intervention was linked to a decreased risk of hip fracture: hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. The advice researchers suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures caused by medications: details about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is all about sharing information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Tonawanda CHIROPRACTIC SUGGESTED NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS AND HIP FRACTURE REDUCTION

As hip fracture is a serious complication of osteoporosis, a non-drug approach like multivitamin use and its effect on hip fracture risk is of interest.  A meta-analysis reported on 8 studies on hip fracture risk and multivitamin use. 80,148 subjects – 4237 of them had a fragility hip fracture – were included. The average age was 69 years. 21% were male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already very popular and commonly used. Their use was found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation hates to think any of our osteoporotic patients would experience a hip fracture!
