Valid for Submission
S32.2XXD is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of fracture of coccyx, subsequent encounter for fracture with routine healing. The code S32.2XXD is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code S32.2XXD might also be used to specify conditions or terms like closed fracture of coccyx, closed fracture of sacrum and/or coccyx with cauda equina injury, closed fracture of sacrum and/or coccyx with complete cauda equina lesion, closed spinal fracture with cauda equina lesion, fracture of coccyx , injury of coccyx, etc. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.
S32.2XXD is a subsequent encounter code, includes a 7th character and should be used after the patient has completed active treatment for a condition like fracture of coccyx for fracture with routine healing. 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 following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Closed fracture of coccyx
- Closed fracture of sacrum AND/OR coccyx with cauda equina injury
- Closed fracture of sacrum AND/OR coccyx with complete cauda equina lesion
- Closed spinal fracture with cauda equina lesion
- Fracture of coccyx
- Injury of coccyx
- Open fracture of coccyx
- Open fracture of sacrum AND/OR coccyx with cauda equina injury
- Open fracture of sacrum AND/OR coccyx with complete cauda equina lesion
- Open spinal fracture with cauda equina lesion

Information for Patients
Also called: Broken bone
A fracture is a break, usually in a bone. If the broken bone punctures the skin, it is called an open or compound fracture. Fractures commonly happen because of car accidents, falls, or sports injuries. Other causes are low bone density and osteoporosis, which cause weakening of the bones. Overuse can cause stress fractures, which are very small cracks in the bone.
Symptoms of a fracture are
- Intense pain
- Deformity - the limb looks out of place
- Swelling, bruising, or tenderness around the injury
- Numbness and tingling
- Problems moving a limb
You need to get medical care right away for any fracture. An x-ray can tell if your bone is broken. You may need to wear a cast or splint. Sometimes you need surgery to put in plates, pins or screws to keep the bone in place.

Also called: Coccyx disorders
The tailbone is the small bone at the bottom of your backbone, or spine. Tailbone disorders include tailbone injuries, pain, infections, cysts and tumors. You rarely break your tailbone. Instead, most injuries cause bruises or pulled ligaments. A backward fall onto a hard surface, such as slipping on ice, is the most common cause of such injuries. Symptoms of various tailbone disorders include pain in the tailbone area, pain upon sitting, pain or numbness in the arms or legs due to pressure on nerves in the tailbone area, and a mass or growth you can see or feel.
