Millville Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

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 described as changing 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: antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs, benzodiazepines, H2 antagonists, proton pump inhibitors, 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 giving out 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!
