Carrolltown Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues globally. The risk of Carrolltown hip fracture is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes our Carrolltown osteoporotic patients. A new, simple way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Carrolltown 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 occasionally a trick! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research data regarding the effectiveness of screening the general population reported that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is watchful of at-risk Carrolltown osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Carrolltown 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 associated with 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 linked to 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: details about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is all about sharing information and would add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.

Carrolltown 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 quite popular and widely used. Their use was found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation hates to think any of our osteoporotic patients would deal with a hip fracture!
