West Palm Beach Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues globally. The risk of West Palm Beach hip fracture is impacted adversely by drugs taken for all types of issues and helpfully by nutritional supplements. Moses Chiropractic constantly keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes our West Palm Beach osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

West Palm Beach 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 difficult! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research findings regarding the effectiveness of screening the general population reported that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Moses Chiropractic is vigilant about looking for at-risk West Palm Beach osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND West Palm Beach OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and related matters including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some pharmaceutical products are reported to change bone structure and impact the risk of fragility hip fractures. These drugs were highly associated with these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the topic: antiparkinsonian drugs, antidepressants, anxiolytic drugs, antipsychotic drugs, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, H2 antagonists, and thyroid hormone.  One drug intervention was linked to a decreased 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: information about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good advice. Moses Chiropractic is all about giving out information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

West Palm Beach 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 interesting.  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) Moses Chiropractic would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients experience a hip fracture!
