Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues globally. The risk of Manchester
hip fracture is impacted adversely
by drugs taken for all types of issues and helpfully
by nutritional supplements. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries constantly keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes
our Manchester osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Manchester OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE
As easy as it seems, just figuring out
who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to avoid
a hip fracture is occasionally difficult! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research findings about
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is vigilant about looking for at-risk
Manchester osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Manchester OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and associated issues
including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain
pharmaceutical products are reported to alter
bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were highly 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 caused by medications: information
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good
advice. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is all about giving out information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
Manchester 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 examined. The average age was 69 years. 21% were
male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already very popular
and widely used. Their use was found to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer
a hip fracture!
