Pensacola Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues around the globe. Pensacola hip fracture risk is impacted adversely by drugs taken for all types of issues and helpfully by nutritional supplements. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center constantly keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes our Pensacola osteoporotic patients. A new, simple way to address hip fracture risk appears to be daily multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Pensacola 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 data about the efficacy of screening the general population reported that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is watchful of at-risk Pensacola osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Pensacola OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated issues including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain pharmaceutical products are reported to change bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures. These drugs were significantly linked to these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the subject: antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs, H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, and thyroid hormone.  One drug intervention was linked to a decreased 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. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is all about giving out information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Pensacola 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 included. The average age was 69 years. 21% were male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already very popular and widely used. Their use was observed to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer a hip fracture!
