Hip fractures. These are major health
issues globally. Sandy Springs hip fracture risk is impacted adversely
by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Cross Chiropractic Center always keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes
our Sandy Springs osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Sandy Springs 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 a trick! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research findings about
the efficacy of screening the general population reported
that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center is watchful of at-risk
Sandy Springs osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Sandy Springs OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and associated issues
like 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 highly associated with
these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the subject:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, 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 caused by medications: info
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. Cross Chiropractic Center is all about giving out information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
Sandy Springs 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 most
meta-analysis found 8 studies on hip fracture risk and
multivitamin use. 80,148 subjects – 4237 of them had a fragility hip fracture –
were reviewed. The average age was 69 years. 21% were
male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already quite popular
and widely used. Their use was observed to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)

think any of our osteoporotic patients would experience
a hip fracture!
