Ashburn Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues around the world. The risk of Ashburn hip fracture is impacted adversely by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and helpfully by nutritional supplements. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn always keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully monitors our Ashburn osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Ashburn 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 sometimes difficult! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research data regarding the efficacy of screening the general population reported that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is watchful of at-risk Ashburn osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Ashburn OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated matters including 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 highly linked to these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the subject: antiparkinsonian drugs, antidepressants, anxiolytic drugs, antipsychotic drugs, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, H2 antagonists, and thyroid hormone.  One drug intervention was associated with a reduced risk of hip fracture: hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. The advice researchers proposed to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures caused by medications: info about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good advice. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is all about giving out information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Ashburn 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 found 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 very popular and widely used. Their use was observed to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture.
