Hip fractures. These are major health
issues around the world. Fernandina Beach hip fracture risk is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic constantly keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with
osteoporosis and carefully monitors
our Fernandina Beach osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Fernandina Beach OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE
As easy as it seems, just figuring out
who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to prevent
a hip fracture is sometimes difficult! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research data about
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is watchful of at-risk
Fernandina Beach osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Fernandina Beach OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related 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 significantly associated with
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 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 due to medications: information
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is all about sharing information and would
add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.
Fernandina 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
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)
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic hates to
think any of our osteoporotic patients would deal with
a hip fracture!
