Burlington and Hamilton Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues globally. The risk of Burlington and Hamilton hip fracture is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Spinal Care Clinic always considers 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 occasionally 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 decreased 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 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 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!
