Hip fractures (VOHF) are a type of bone fracture that occurs in the hip bone, typically affecting older adults. Recovery from hip fractures in older adults can be challenging due to factors such as decreased mobility, weakened bones, and other health issues. This paper intends to determine the effect of mini-nutrition nursing plus Baduanjin rehabilitation exercise on postoperative rehabilitation of elderly patients with vertebral or hip fractures (VOHF). 106 senile VOHF patients were chosen for the study between May 2020 and May 2022. The research group (RG) consisted of 60 patients who received mini-nutrition nursing + Baduanjin rehabilitation exercise, while the control group (CG) had 46 patients who received mini-nutrition nursing + routine rehabilitation training. The study compared the fracture healing effect, MAMC, CC, and MNA-SF scores. The rehabilitation status of patients was evaluated using FMA, BI, BBS, and VAS. Adverse reactions during hospitalization and SF-36 scores were also recorded. Better fracture healing efficacy and higher MAMC, CC, and MNA-SF scores were determined in RG versus CG (P < 0.05). Elevated FMA, BI and BBS scores were observed in both groups after rehabilitation training, with more evident elevations in RG; while the VAS score reduced markedly and was lower in RG compared with CG (P < 0.05). In addition, RG was observed with fewer adverse reactions and higher SF-36 scores (P < 0.05). Mini-nutrition nursing + Baduanjin rehabilitation exercise can effectively accelerate the postoperative rehabilitation of elderly patients with VOHF, improve mobility, and enhance their quality of life.
