The 25 Most Common ICD-10 Codes in Physical Therapy

The tenth edition of the International Classification of Diseases, or ICD-10, provides the healthcare world with a consistent naming standard for diagnosing diseases and conditions. ICD-10 was created by the World Health Organization and made its way to the U.S. healthcare system in late 2015. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires HIPAA-compliant providers to use ICD-10 in their practice when documenting or billing claims.

In our download, Clinicient went through over a million PT visits in 2021 to determine the most common ICD-10 codes within the industry. Download our guide for our top 25 list with code descriptions, plus applicable Exclude 1 or Exclude 2 codes.
