    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello. I need help finding 2 codes. GIRD in the shoulder and S.I.C.K. Scapula. Any ideas let me know.

    When they talk about GIRD - is this a shoulder impingement?

    And the only thing I found on sick scapula is:
    We use the acronym SICK to refer to the findings
    one sees in this syndrome (Scapular malposition,
    Inferior medial border prominence, Coracoid
    pain and malposition, and dysKinesis of scapular

    I don't know if any of this will be helpful but I hope so.
