A Functional Capacity Evaluation provides the information for both client and physician to understand what the patient is capable of doing. We will measure your range of motion, manual muscle strength, push, pull, lifting tolerance, nonmaterial handling, and cardiovascular endurance. We will then be able to determine your physical demand level. This evaluation is utilized for work injuries and for long term and short term disability.
After a work injury, don't put yourself at risk of hurting yourself again. Spine & Rehab Solutions can help determine if you are physically ready to go back to work. A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a scientifically developed objective process that measures a worker's physical capabilities and tolerances (also known as a worker's physical demand level).
Spine & Rehab Solutions' standardized protocols determine the level of participation and activity that is right for the patient following rehabilitation, thus providing the highest probability for return to work without re-injury. Spine & Rehab Solutions' Physical Therapists use evaluation tools and methods that are peer-reviewed, validity based and legally defensible in the field of occupational rehabilitation. At Spine & Rehab Solutions, we do occupation specific FCE's to ensure that the test evaluates items that are critical to the functional job description
All testing is performed with standardized protocols that are specific to each case in question. Each FCE will provide information on the reliability of physical effort, reliability of pain reports/behaviors and safe levels of functional capacity.
