    quick one....would it be acceptable to performa trigger point injection for a patient that has an abdominal neoplasm? Aren't triggers for muscles + tendons and NOT neoplasms? Please advise..

    TPI's are for muscles... Prob the doc wants to do some kind of nerve block to manage the pain from the cancer, but it wouldn't be a TPI... you'd have to find out what nerve he wants to block and code accordingly...
