Functional Capacity Evaluations

Need a precise, objective measure of your patients/clients functional physical ability? Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) is an extensive physical agility test, and when performed by a medically trained, highly skilled, Physical Therapist you can be assured that each assessment is accurate and will hold credibility in a court of law.

This unique service is provided at Back at Work Physical Therapy – where our Physical Therapist has performed hundreds of FCE’s. Using the Matheson FCE System, each comprehensive evaluation is administered in our clinic, one-on-one with the Physical Therapist and may range in length from 4 – 5 hours. Available in both our Logan, Utah and Layton, Utah locations.

Who Can Benefit from an FCE:

  • Someone who has been injured on the job to determine his or her ability to return to the job or alternate work.
  • Someone seeking to return to work or volunteer activities after an injury or illness.
  •  Someone injured in a catastrophic accident (i.e. automobile accident) for whom an FCE can determine performance skills and abilities related to resuming former employment or a new job.
  • Someone seeking vocational rehabilitation services.

FCE is used to determine:

  • Goals for rehabilitation or readiness for discharge planning.
  •  Medical eligibility for disability benefits.
  • Worker’s compensation case settlement.
  • A modified treatment program.
  • Physical abilities of patients before and after a rehab program.
  •  Whether an injured worker can safely return to work.
  • Return to work decisions (including full duty, modified duty or transitional duty).
