Severna Park Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

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 helpfully 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 appears 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 giving out 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!
