Paramus Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

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.
