do you really have to see a doctor to be prescribed muscle relaxers?

I threw out my back and can't move very well. This has happened before in the past (twice in 15 years) and each time I called my GP and they called in a prescription for me. My current GP says I need to come to the office (impossible). I explained that in the past I was able to handle things over the phone, and they said that it was probably a long time ago when rules were different. It's true that the last time this happened was 9 years ago. But I just find it unbelievable that a patient who can't physically move would be expected to physically move in order to get the drugs that could help her physically move. I'm wondering if the rules really are this strict or if just this GP is.
