Hip fractures. These are major health
issues globally. Burlington and Hamilton hip fracture risk is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Spinal Care Clinic always keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes
our Burlington and Hamilton osteoporotic patients. A new, simple
way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Burlington and Hamilton OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE
As easy as it seems, just figuring out
who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to avoid
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 reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Spinal Care Clinic is vigilant about looking for at-risk
Burlington and Hamilton osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Burlington and Hamilton OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related issues
including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain
pharmaceutical products are reported to alter
bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were highly linked to
these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the topic:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, proton
pump inhibitors, and thyroid hormone.
One drug intervention was associated with 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: details
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. Spinal Care Clinic is all about giving out information and would
add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.
Burlington and Hamilton 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)
Spinal Care Clinic would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer
a hip fracture!
