Functional Capacity Evaluations in NJ
Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) are used by therapists to determine overall patient ability and project what level of recovery they will be able to achieve in the future. The FCE process incorporates perceived levels of function, actual abilities, and examining aspects such as effort, competitive test performance, and cross-referencing them to specific job descriptions and titles. This comprehensive test can be used before hiring an individual to determine if the potential employee can physically perform the job requirements or following an injury to maximize the employee’s abilities.
Pro Staff Physical Therapy has several convenient locations across the state of New Jersey that offer FCE. We work with several companies to protect them throughout the hiring process to ensure that they are getting high quality candidates that can perform the job required.
What to Expect at a Functional Capacity Evaluation
Our FCE is determined by whatever your company needs to protect itself. We make sure to screen for any health-related issues that may impact a potential employee’s ability to perform the job.
First, we have a comprehensive musculoskeletal screen that considers any current issues the individual may be going through. Next, we have a series of functional tests that are determined by whatever the task or job may be. Finally, we provide recommendations if we feel that the patient or employee is capable of safely performing the task required.
At Pro Staff Physical Therapy, we pride ourselves on making our patients feel comfortable every step of the way. Each physical therapist is trained to objectively assess patients’ movement patterns and help teach individuals how to perform tasks safely.
Why Use a Functional Capacity Evaluation?
- Provides insurance companies information on the functional level of patient for return to work.
- A great means of case resolution.
- An FCE can be used as an independent consultant apart from the employee’s treating therapist.
- Helps employers by giving a clear picture of what the employee is physically able to perform.
