West Palm Beach Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

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 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 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!
