Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues around the world. Plainville hip fracture risk is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Layden Chiropractic constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with
osteoporosis and carefully observes
our Plainville osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Plainville 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 occasionally difficult! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research data regarding
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Layden Chiropractic is watchful of at-risk
Plainville osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Plainville OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and associated matters
including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain
pharmaceutical products are described as changing
bone structure and impact 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,
benzodiazepines, H2 antagonists, 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 due to medications: info
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good
advice. Layden Chiropractic is all about giving out information and would
add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.
Plainville 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 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)
Layden Chiropractic hates to
think any of our osteoporotic patients would deal with
a hip fracture!
