Manchester Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues around the globe. 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 described as changing 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 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 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.
