Our physical and occupational therapists are trained to perform functional capacity evaluations (FCE’s) to assist employers, physicians, or insurance companies in determining the level of work activity an injured or diseased worker can achieve. An FCE medical consists of a detailed physical exam that includes a variety of functional capacity tests for patient recoveries, such as strength, range or motion, and sensory-motor testing, review of pertinent medical history, evaluation of endurance to specific work tasks, and more.

FCE for workers’ comp are common and the FCE exam results are communicated to both the physician and employer for consideration of the employee’s work responsibilities and to determine the best prognosis with recommendations of additional service if needed.

A functional capacity evaluation is also beneficial to attorneys, case managers, and vocation consultants by offering information for rulings of claims in short/long term disability and other disputes.
