McHenry Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues around the world. The risk of McHenry hip fracture is impacted adversely by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Spengel Chiropractic constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes our McHenry osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

McHenry 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 a trick! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research data regarding the efficacy of screening the general population reported that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Spengel Chiropractic is watchful of at-risk McHenry osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND McHenry OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated matters like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain pharmaceutical products are described as changing bone structure and impact the risk of fragility hip fractures. These drugs were highly associated with these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the subject: antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs, benzodiazepines, H2 antagonists, proton pump inhibitors, 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 caused by medications: info about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Spengel Chiropractic is all about giving out information and would add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.

McHenry 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 found 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 quite popular and commonly used. Their use was found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Spengel Chiropractic would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients deal with a hip fracture!
