Functional Capacity Evaluation

Atlas Physical Therapy offers Functional Capacity Evaluations for individuals who want to get back to work following a work injury.

A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is an evaluation that focuses on musculoskeletal strength, endurance, speed, flexibility, mobility and dexterity to determine a worker’s functional ability in a variety of circumstances, most often employment. FCE’s are often required by insurers when an insured person applies for disability payments or a disability pension, in the case of permanent disability. The evaluation typically last four hours and allows the evaluator to determine each worker’s current and potential functional and vocational status.
