Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues globally. West Palm Beach hip fracture risk is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Chiropractic Care always considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes
our West Palm Beach osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk appears to be daily
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
West Palm Beach 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 avoid
a hip fracture is occasionally a trick! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research findings regarding
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Chiropractic Care is watchful of at-risk
West Palm Beach osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND West Palm Beach OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related matters
like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain
pharmaceutical products are reported to change
bone structure and impact the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were significantly linked to
these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the topic:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, proton
pump inhibitors, and thyroid hormone.
One drug intervention was associated with a decreased 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: information
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. Chiropractic Care is all about sharing information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC SUGGESTED NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

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

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 very popular
and commonly used. Their use was found to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
Chiropractic Care would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients deal with
a hip fracture!
