    CMC injections at the base of the thumb. Are these considered wrist or finger injections. Wrist seems more likely to me but I need a second opinion.

    Thanks in advance.

    answered my own question. injection can be done from different angles around the thumb, in the webspace, on the palmar side . The correct code is 20600.
