re: tendinosis&tendinitis shoulder

tendinosis and tendinitis are both different altogether


Tendonitis refers to tendon inflammation.whereas Tendinosis refers to internal tendon degeneration. This occurs because on an imbalance between tendon breakdown and tendon repair. Thus, tendinosis can result either from an increase in breakdown such as from overuse or injury, or from a decrease in the healing response.

It has to be coded as M75.1ØØ Unspecified rotator cuff tear or rupture of unspecified shoulder, not specified as traumatic
M75.5Ø Bursitis of unspecified shoulder
