Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues globally. Fort Wayne hip fracture risk is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and helpfully
by nutritional supplements. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with
osteoporosis and carefully observes
our Fort Wayne osteoporotic patients. A new, simple
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be daily
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Fort Wayne OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE
As easy as it seems, just finding the people
who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to prevent
a hip fracture is sometimes a trick! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research findings regarding
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is vigilant about looking for at-risk
Fort Wayne osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Fort Wayne OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related issues
like 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 linked to
these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the topic:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
benzodiazepines, H2 antagonists, 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. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is all about sharing information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
Fort Wayne 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 included. 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)
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients experience
a hip fracture!
