Hip fractures. These are major health
issues around the world. The risk of Paramus
hip fracture is impacted adversely
by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully monitors
our Paramus osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Paramus 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 data about
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is watchful of at-risk
Paramus osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Paramus OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related matters
including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some
pharmaceutical products are reported to alter
bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were highly associated with
these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the topic:
antiparkinsonian drugs, antidepressants, anxiolytic
drugs, antipsychotic drugs, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, H2
antagonists, and thyroid hormone.
One drug intervention was linked to 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’s good
advice. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is all about giving out information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
Paramus 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 commonly used. Their use was found to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients experience
a hip fracture!
