Why would a psychologist be concerned about a teenaged boy's walking?

I've head of a case where a psychologist thought that a teenaged boy's walking was a bit funny so he asked for a medical examination to be done. There was no mention of why.

Psychology is about the mind, not the physical body, so could it be because he thought that the boy may have been physically abused?

    No. You just said, he recommended a medical examination...done by a non-psychologist. He suspects something physical is wrong but he's not qualified to know what.
