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.

“We learned of Dr. Muzzi and her staff via our cost sharing provider, Liberty Health Share. We chose to join the practice because Dr. Muzzi is an excellent physician, she can see and treat our whole family, and we can have 24-hour access. The direct primary care model is SO much more convenient and gives me additional piece of mind. Dr. Muzzi goes above and beyond for her patients. She really takes the time to listen and understand my questions, thoughts, and concerns. She helps educate me while also respecting my choices and preferences, which is very important to me as a mom. I know my family is receiving the best possible care under Dr Muzzi. I’ve never experienced another doctor so passionate about truly helping her patients. She goes above and beyond for us, and we are truly grateful to have her in our lives! Her nurse Erin is awesome and takes great care of us as well! If you want the best care possible, and the added peace of mind of direct access then look no further!”
