Hip fractures. These are major health
issues globally. Manahawkin hip fracture risk is impacted adversely
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center always considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with
osteoporosis and carefully observes
our Manahawkin osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Manahawkin 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 a trick! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research data about
the efficacy of screening the general population reported
that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is vigilant about looking for at-risk
Manahawkin osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Manahawkin OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and associated matters
including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some
pharmaceutical products are reported to alter
bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were significantly linked to
these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the subject:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, 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 suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip
fractures due to medications: info
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good
advice. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is all about giving out information and would
add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.
Manahawkin 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 of interest. 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 examined. The average age was 69 years. 21% were
male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already very popular
and commonly used. Their use was observed to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer
a hip fracture!
