Functional Capacity Evaluation - FCE
At Empower Physical Therapy and Fitness we offer Functional Capacity Evaluations for individuals trying to return to work. An FCE is a medical assessment on how well the patient performs work tasks. During the assessment we will measure your strength and endurance for a better understanding of your physical capabilities. An FCE would be beneficial in the following situations:
To determine if an individual who has been injured on the job is able to return to the job or alternate work
To assist an individual who is applying for Social Security Disability benefits
To assess an individual who was injured in a catastrophic accident to determine performance skills and abilities related to resuming former employment or a new job
