How is a Functional Capacity Evaluation conducted?
Our certified FCE evaluators will begin by reviewing the individual’s medical history during the pre-evaluation and intake interview. Next, individuals will be asked to perform a number of tests that have been designed to test various muscle groups. Tests include positional tolerance, range of motion, strength, dexterity, stamina, and subjective pain assessments. Specific tests conducted will depend on the nature of the existing injury or condition and are often completed in a single day to two days depending on the nature of the tests. Once completed, a detailed report is generated for employers or insurers in order that they may develop return to work modification plans or to address insurance qualifications.
