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
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!
