    Default Piriformis Muscle Trigger Point

    Did you ever find out what code to use for this? I have the same situation and have seen different responses. I've seen in Medicare Part B News that if it is+ into the nerve it should be 64445 but if it is in the muscle to use 64999. The note I have from my doctor states "trigger point injection into the right buttock at the piriformis muscle. Any ideas?
