Default E-Code for Twisting injury

Wondering what E-code to use when patient presents to ED when they stepped off a curb and sustained an inversion injury to the ankle. Twisting gives me E9278, overexertion & strenuous & repetitive movements or loads??

LTibbetts is an unknown quantity at this point
Default same

That is what we use, too. 3M always prompts us to that code.
