Fracture Treatment in Orlando, FL

Fracture Treatment Orlando FLIf a bone is subjected to a greater force than it can bear, it may fracture (break) and require treatment. Some common causes of broken bones include falls, car accidents, sports-related collisions, and direct trauma. With age, the bones naturally become more brittle and prone to fracturing. Other risk factors include low bone density, tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, and a sedentary lifestyle.

Bone fractures can range in severity from a hairline crack to a full break to a bone that is completely shattered.

Where to Seek Fracture Treatment

If you think you might have a broken bone, you should seek fracture treatment right away to ensure proper healing. Go directly to the nearest hospital emergency room if your injury involves head or spinal trauma, or if you have:

  • Uncontrollable bleeding
  • Numbness in the area around your injury
  • Severe swelling or bruising
  • A visible deformity at the injury site
  • A bone protruding through your skin

Otherwise, if you are a member of Optimum Direct Care in Orlando, Florida, you can receive prompt fracture treatment from our board-certified family practice physician, Dr. Toni “Muzzi” Muzzonigro.

What Does Treatment for a Minor Bone Fracture Involve?

Dr. Muzzi will begin by asking about your symptoms and the circumstances of your injury. She’ll then perform a physical examination and likely order an imaging test, such as an X-ray. As a member of our direct primary care (DPC) practice, you can receive any imaging tests ordered by Dr. Muzzi from a provider we recommend in Orlando, FL, at a discount.

Most minor fractures can be treated by immobilizing the broken bone with an elastic bandage, splint, sling, or cast to keep it in the proper position as it heals. Dr. Muzzi may also recommend a pain-relieving medication, heat and ice applications, or physical therapy as part of your fracture treatment.

“My husband and I are big fans of Dr. Toni Muzzonigro and ODC. She takes great time and care in both listening to us and explaining medical issues. We didn’t get this when we were part of an HMO or PPO healthcare network. For those rare emergencies, I can reach her after hours and receive an immediate response. We also like that she is not totally westernized in her viewpoints and will give holistic advice. Erin and the staff are amazing. They are warm and welcoming. You don’t feel like a number when you visit ODC. Love them!”

“My husband and I were in search of a new physician when my neighbor mentioned that we should meet Dr Toni Muzzinigro who was a “Direct Primary Care” physician. We were not familiar with the term and were very intrigued. We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. Our initial appointment was so thorough. She wanted to know every aspect of our past records. I felt like she really cared about us and her main goal was to keep us as healthy as possible. During our annual appointments, Dr. Muzzi schedules enough time to go over every concern you may have. Her explanations of test results are very thorough, and she is very knowledgeable of up to date medical breakthroughs. There have been some times during the year that we needed a doctor’s advice quickly. She is available to us basically 24/7. You can get in touch with her via phone, text, or video conferencing. Many things can be handled in a quick and timely manner. However, if there is a need to see her personally, getting in to see her doesn’t take weeks. Usually, you can make an appointment the very next day. How comforting is it to know that your doctor is always available to you and truly cares about your wellbeing! That is worth its weight in gold! Her staff are an added bonus! They run the office efficiently and take care of any other needs we may have. Another great advantage is that Dr. Muzzi has a network of specialists, labs, and resources available to us and at a discounted rate and free generic prescriptions. Personally, we like the fact that someone can help us navigate the medical system and direct us in the right direction. I simply can’t say enough. Dr. Muzzi has become our doctor as well as a good friend. She will always have our best interest at heart and her main goal is to provide the highest level of care. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Muzzi and Optimum Direct Care.”
