Murfreesboro Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues around the globe. Murfreesboro hip fracture risk is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Most Chiropractic Clinic always keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully monitors our Murfreesboro osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Murfreesboro 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) Most Chiropractic Clinic is watchful of at-risk Murfreesboro osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Murfreesboro OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated matters like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some pharmaceutical products are reported to alter bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures. These drugs were significantly linked to these fractures in this 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 reduced risk of hip fracture: hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. The advice researchers suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures due to medications: info about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Most Chiropractic Clinic is all about giving out information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Murfreesboro 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 commonly used. Their use was found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients experience a hip fracture!
