Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues globally. The risk of Severna Park
hip fracture is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Back And Neck Care Center always considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with
osteoporosis and carefully observes
our Severna Park osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Severna Park 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 sometimes a trick! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research findings about
the efficacy of screening the general population reported
that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Back And Neck Care Center is watchful of at-risk
Severna Park osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Severna Park OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related matters
like 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 significantly associated with
these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the topic:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
benzodiazepines, H2 antagonists, 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 suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip
fractures due to medications: information
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good
advice. Back And Neck Care Center is all about sharing information and would
add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.
Severna Park 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 reviewed. The average age was 69 years. 21% were
male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already quite popular
and widely used. Their use was observed to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
Back And Neck Care Center would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer
a hip fracture!
