Eugene Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues globally. The risk of Eugene hip fracture is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all types of issues and helpfully by nutritional supplements. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully monitors our Eugene osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Eugene 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 effectiveness of screening the general population reported that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is vigilant about looking for at-risk Eugene osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Eugene OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and related 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 significantly associated with these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the topic: antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs, H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, 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: info about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good advice. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is all about sharing information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Eugene 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 reported on 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 found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture.
