Smile insertional achilles tendonitis

Is there a single code for insertional achilles tendonitis? I'm using 726.71 and 726.73. Just wondering if there is a more appropriate code.

Default Insertional Achilles tendinitis.

726.73 is for calcaneal spur. Only one code available for insertional achilles tendinitis 726.71. It's also acceptable to use for Achilles tendinitis non-insertional.
