In most states, physical therapists cannot make a medical diagnosis. This is something that your medical doctor will provide for you. 

Physical therapists are important members of your medical team. At this point in time, physicians are typically the health care providers that will provide you with a medical diagnosis and write a prescription to see the physical therapist. If you've visited your doctor recently and feel you need a prescription for physical therapy we can request one for you from your doctor.
