Manahawkin Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

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!
