Sandy Springs Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

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 interesting.  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 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) Cross Chiropractic Center hates to think any of our osteoporotic patients would experience a hip fracture!
