    Default C4-C5 Paraspinal Injection

    AAPC: Back to School
    How do I code for this type of injection? I was thinking trigger point but not sure. Dictation states: "Neck prepped and paraspinally injected at the C4-C5 levels on R & L"

    Thanks for your help!

    Wink Injections...

    It sounds to me like you are right on the money...right and left trigger point injections (paraspinous muscles)...go with your instinct.

    Happy Holidays
