Oxford Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues around the world. Oxford hip fracture risk is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Satterwhite Chiropractic always considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully observes our Oxford osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk seems to be daily multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Oxford 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 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 reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic is vigilant about looking for at-risk Oxford osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Oxford OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated issues 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 significantly associated with 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 suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures due to medications: details about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Satterwhite Chiropractic is all about giving out information and would add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.

Oxford 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. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic hates to think any of our osteoporotic patients would deal with a hip fracture!
