Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE)

dummy-imageOur physical therapists can help determine if a patient is physically ready to return to work following an injury. A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a scientifically-developed, objective process which allows us to measure a patient's physical capabilities and tolerances. A patient’s current level of function is compared to the required physical demands of his or her job. Our proprietary FCE determines the level of participation and activity that is right for the patient following rehabilitation.

All testing is performed with our evidence-based protocol, and testing is unique and specific to each case. We can simulate any type of workplace setting at our facility. All of our FCEs are controlled, real-world experiences, not computer generated numbers. FCEs can include the performance of activities such as climbing stairs, lifting and carrying objects, and balancing.

Performance Physical Therapy & Sports Conditioning is a privately owned and operated clinic and provides fair, accurate, objective data and information in each specific Functional Capacity Evaluation and Workers' Compensation case.
