Hip fractures. These are major health
issues around the globe. Colorado Springs hip fracture risk is impacted adversely
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and helpfully
by nutritional supplements. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR always keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes
our Colorado Springs osteoporotic patients. A new, simple
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Colorado Springs OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE
As easy as it seems, just figuring out
who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to prevent
a hip fracture is occasionally difficult! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research findings about
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is watchful of at-risk
Colorado Springs osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Colorado Springs OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and associated issues
like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain
pharmaceutical products are described as changing
bone structure and influence 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 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: info
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is all about sharing information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
Colorado Springs 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 included. The average age was 69 years. 21% were
male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already very popular
and commonly used. Their use was observed to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR hates to
think any of our osteoporotic patients would experience
a hip fracture!
