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.

“There is no better care available than with Optimum Direct Care (ODC). We have been with Dr. Muzzi and Erin for several years now. The attention to detail, quick response and holistic approach to your health is unrivaled. They provide peace of mind for always knowing you can reach your doctor anytime. There is no waiting, no repeating who you are and your history over and over. No making multiple calls to the doctors office for requesting your prescription refills or holding your breath to be able to make an appointment for urgent care. We love the direct care model as we were part of another similar practice in the area before coming to Dr Muzzi. However they charged not only premium prices for monthly membership but in addition a top dollar price for every visit. With ODC it is just your monthly membership fee. Our family highly recommends Dr. Muzzi and ODC. They feel like our extended family. ”
