Hip fractures. These are major health
issues around the world. Montreal hip fracture risk is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic always keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with
osteoporosis and carefully observes
our Montreal osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Montreal 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 findings about
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is vigilant about looking for at-risk
Montreal osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Montreal OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related matters
like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some
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 topic:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
benzodiazepines, H2 antagonists, proton
pump inhibitors, and thyroid hormone.
One drug intervention was associated with a decreased 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: details
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is all about sharing information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
Montreal 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 reviewed. The average age was 69 years. 21% were
male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already quite popular
and commonly used. Their use was observed to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients deal with
a hip fracture!
