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 impact 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!
