Valid for Submission
S09.11XD is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of strain of muscle and tendon of head, subsequent encounter. The code S09.11XD is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code S09.11XD might also be used to specify conditions or terms like dislocations, sprains and strains involving head with neck, dislocations, sprains and strains involving multiple body regions, dislocations/sprains/strains, injury of muscle of head, injury of tendon of head , mentalis strain, etc. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.
S09.11XD is a subsequent encounter code, includes a 7th character and should be used after the patient has completed active treatment for a condition like strain of muscle and tendon of head. According to ICD-10-CM Guidelines a "subsequent encounter" occurs when the patient is receiving routine care for the condition during the healing or recovery phase of treatment. Subsequent diagnosis codes are appropriate during the recovery phase, no matter how many times the patient has seen the provider for this condition. If the provider needs to adjust the patient's care plan due to a setback or other complication, the encounter becomes active again.
The appropriate 7th character is to be added to each code from block Other and unspecified injuries of head (S09). Use the following options for the aplicable episode of care:
- A - initial encounter
- D - subsequent encounter
- S - sequela
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Dislocations, sprains and strains involving head with neck
- Dislocations, sprains and strains involving multiple body regions
- Injury of muscle of head
- Injury of tendon of head
- Mentalis strain
- Rupture of tendon of head and neck
- Strain of fascia of head
- Strain of jaw
- Strain of muscle of face
- Strain of muscle of head
- Strain of tendon of head
- Strain of tendon of head and neck

The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code S09.11XD its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
Chances are you've bumped your head before. Often, the injury is minor because your skull is hard and it protects your brain. But other head injuries can be more severe, such as a skull fracture, concussion, or traumatic brain injury.
Head injuries can be open or closed. A closed injury does not break through the skull. With an open, or penetrating, injury, an object pierces the skull and enters the brain. Closed injuries are not always less severe than open injuries.
Some common causes of head injuries are falls, motor vehicle accidents, violence, and sports injuries.
It is important to know the warning signs of a moderate or severe head injury. Get help immediately if the injured person has
- A headache that gets worse or does not go away
- Repeated vomiting or nausea
- Convulsions or seizures
- An inability to wake up
- Dilated (enlarged) pupil in one or both eyes
- Slurred speech
- Weakness or numbness in the arms or legs
- Loss of coordination
- Increased confusion, restlessness, or agitation
Doctors use a neurologic exam and imaging tests to make a diagnosis. Treatment depends on the type of injury and how severe it is.

Sprains and Strains
A sprain is a stretched or torn ligament. Ligaments are tissues that connect bones at a joint. Falling, twisting, or getting hit can all cause a sprain. Ankle and wrist sprains are common. Symptoms include pain, swelling, bruising, and being unable to move your joint. You might feel a pop or tear when the injury happens.
A strain is a stretched or torn muscle or tendon. Tendons are tissues that connect muscle to bone. Twisting or pulling these tissues can cause a strain. Strains can happen suddenly or develop over time. Back and hamstring muscle strains are common. Many people get strains playing sports. Symptoms include pain, muscle spasms, swelling, and trouble moving the muscle.
At first, treatment of both sprains and strains usually involves resting the injured area, icing it, wearing a bandage or device that compresses the area, and medicines. Later treatment might include exercise and physical therapy.
