Question about English (US)

You all definitely know the phrase “treat someone for disease or injury”.

e.g. He was treated for headache.

However, I wonder why “for” is placed in this phrase, though other uses of “for” in other colloquial phrases are understandable for me.

I beg you give me some examples of phrasal verbs using “for” the same way as this.
