Williamson Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues around the world. The risk of Williamson hip fracture is impacted adversely by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and helpfully by nutritional supplements. Apple Country Chiropractic constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes our Williamson osteoporotic patients. A new, simple way to address hip fracture risk appears to be daily multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Williamson OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE

As easy as it seems, just finding the people who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to prevent a hip fracture is occasionally a trick! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research findings about the efficacy of screening the general population reported that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Apple Country Chiropractic is watchful of at-risk Williamson osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Williamson OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated issues including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain pharmaceutical products are reported to alter 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 linked to 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: information about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Apple Country Chiropractic is all about giving out information and would add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.

Williamson 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 quite popular and widely used. Their use was found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture.
