Neuromuscular Reeducation (CPT code 97112)

This therapeutic procedure is provided to improve balance, coordination, kinesthetic sense, posture, and proprioception (e.g., proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, Feldenkreis, Bobath, BAP’s boards, and desensitization techniques).

Neuromuscular re-education may be considered medically necessary if at least one of the following conditions is present and documented:

- the patient has the loss of deep tendon reflexes and vibration sense accompanied by paresthesia, burning, or diffuse pain of the feet, lower legs, and/or fingers;

- the patient has nerve palsy, such as peroneal nerve injury causing foot drop; or

- the patient has muscular weakness or flaccidity as a result of a cerebral dysfunction, a nerve injury or disease, or has had a spinal cord disease or trauma.
