Functional physical performance tests use a variety of physical skills and evaluations to determine:
- One’s ability to safely and fully participate in the desired level of sport, occupation, or recreation.
- One’s ability to move through three planes of movement related to motions involved in sports, occupations or exercises.
Patients who wish to return to their pre-injury physical activities benefit from functional tests.
Phoenix ensures that tests are done at the appropriate level and at the appropriate time for each patient. These tests are never done at random. We will carefully evaluate the appropriateness of each test before introducing it to the patient.
