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 proposed 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 indicates that supplementation helps.
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
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 widely 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!
