Lynchburg Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues around the globe. Lynchburg hip fracture risk is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all types of issues and helpfully by nutritional supplements. Palmer Chiropractic Center always keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully observes our Lynchburg osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk appears to be daily multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Lynchburg 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 avoid a hip fracture is occasionally difficult! 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center is vigilant about looking for at-risk Lynchburg osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Lynchburg OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated issues including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain pharmaceutical products are described as changing bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures. These drugs were significantly associated with these fractures in a 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 linked to a reduced risk of hip fracture: hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. The advice researchers suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures caused by medications: info about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Palmer Chiropractic Center is all about giving out information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Lynchburg 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 reported on 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 found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer a hip fracture!
