Patient : My knee started hurting for no apparent reason. It pops and hurts when I keep it bent for too long. My dr referred me to physical therapy without any tests, X-ray, MRI, etc. also he didn't give me a diagnosis other than "knee pain". My question is this normal. A doctor recommending physical therapy without first doing tests?
