Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues globally. San Jose hip fracture risk is impacted adversely
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and helpfully
by nutritional supplements. Chiropractic Solutions always keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with
osteoporosis and carefully monitors
our San Jose osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
San Jose 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 avoid
a hip fracture is occasionally difficult! 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) Chiropractic Solutions is watchful of at-risk
San Jose osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND San Jose 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 due to medications: info
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. Chiropractic Solutions is all about sharing information and would
add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.
San Jose 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 of interest. A
meta-analysis found 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 quite popular
and commonly used. Their use was observed to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
Chiropractic Solutions hates to
think any of our osteoporotic patients would experience
a hip fracture!
