    Hoping someone can answer this question regarding regions manipulated. The short version is, provider documented that 5 regions were manipulated: Cranial, soft tissue technique; Cervical, soft tissue technique facilitated positional release; Thoracic Myofascial Release; Thoracic, soft tissue technique; Lumbar, soft tissue technique. Does this classify as 5 regions or 4 regions since Thoracic was listed twice? 98927 or 98926?
