Supraspinatus tendinosis and partial tear of the articular surface of the tendon near the insertion.

Would you code 726.10 and 840.6 or just 726.10?

Thank you.

Supraspinatus syndrome

You will use either 726.10 or 840.6, not both. 726.10 is for a non-traumatic tear, usually degenerative. 840.6 would be a tear that was a result of a trauma.
