A Functional Capacity Evaluation:

  • Establishes the physical level of work you can perform
  • Useful in determining job placement, job accommodation, or return to work after injury or illness.
  • Determines extent of impairments or degree of physical disability for compensation purposes
  • Predicts potential ability to perform work following acute rehabilitation or a work-hardening or work-conditioning program
  • Assesses your flexibility, strength, balance, coordination, cardiovascular condition, and body mechanics

Our Work Conditioning Program offers the injured worker an exercise-based program focusing on restoring function and return to work.

Goals include:

  • Improving physical strength, endurance, flexibility, stability, and motor control
  • Improving independence in self-management of injury
  • Promote timely and safe return to work
  • Avoidance of further injury
