Hip fractures. These are major health
issues around the world. McHenry hip fracture risk is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. OrthoIllinois 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) OrthoIllinois 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. OrthoIllinois 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
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)
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients deal with
a hip fracture!
