Hip fractures. These are major health
issues globally. The risk of Millville
hip fracture is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all types of issues and helpfully
by nutritional supplements. Wilson Family Chiropractic constantly keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with
osteoporosis and carefully monitors
our Millville osteoporotic patients. A new, simple
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be daily
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Millville OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE
As easy as it seems, just finding the people
who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to prevent
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 decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic is vigilant about looking for at-risk
Millville osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Millville OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related issues
including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain
pharmaceutical products are reported to alter
bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were significantly linked to
these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the topic:
antiparkinsonian drugs, antidepressants, anxiolytic
drugs, antipsychotic drugs, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, H2
antagonists, and thyroid hormone.
One drug intervention was associated with a reduced risk of hip fracture: hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. The advice
researchers proposed to give patients at risk of fragility hip
fractures due to medications: details
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. Wilson Family Chiropractic is all about sharing information and would
add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.
Millville 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 found 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 widely used. Their use was observed to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
Wilson Family Chiropractic would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer
a hip fracture!
