Plainville Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues globally. 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 reported to change 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: antiparkinsonian drugs, antidepressants, anxiolytic drugs, antipsychotic drugs, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, H2 antagonists, 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 points to supplementation as a help.

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 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) Layden Chiropractic would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients deal with a hip fracture!
