Functional Capacity Evaluations
The physical therapists at FIRST Rehab are trained in the Matheson System of Functional Capacity Evaluation’s (FCEs.) Our Matheson System trained therapists “think outside the box.” The FCE is used by physicians, case managers, and employers to transition injured workers from disability to function and employment. This is an important bridge from the impairment phase of medical evaluation to the disability recovery phase. The FCE is the single most efficient test to determine if a successful return-to-work is possible.
The Evaluation includes an intake interview, physical assessment, and functional assessment.
FCE’s focus on functional ability instead of pain limitation associated with an impairment.
Strength, flexibility, endurance, and body mechanics are assessed.
Reliability of patient reports and motivation are assessed.
Pushing, pulling, lifting, carrying, reaching, and gripping are assessed through functional testing.
Testing takes 3-4 hrs.
If you do not have private insurance, please call our office and we will be happy to work out a fee schedule for you
