I need help finding an icd 10 code for wedge/compression fractures that the physician did not document as a particular area of the spine or as pathological due to osteoporosis. His statement was (paraphrased) as bedridden due to wedge/compression fractures.

the appropriate code for the above scenario is S32.000.
Further query is welcome.
