In brief: Need more treatment

It seems from your question that the physical therapy has not been effective in relieving your symptoms.
Perhaps your problem needs other treatment to be fully resolved. More diagnostic studies such as x-rays or an MRI or nerve studies may be recommended. Getting adequate treatment through worker's compensation can often be difficult, but use your resources to advocate for further treatment.

In brief: The

The physical therapist (pt) treating you can discharge you from therapy if he/she feels you have reached your treatment goals or feels that you are not responding to physical therapy.
The doctor can request another physical therapy evaluation or speak to your therapist directly and get a better understanding of why you were discharged. They may be able to come up with a treatment plan together; if not your doctor can always refer you to another pt if they feel it is in your best interest. You should bring up all your concerns (expecially regarding your workers comp case) with your doctor or social worker if applicable. Good luck.
