What is an FCE?

An FCE, or functional capability evaluation, assesses whether or not you are physically able to return to work. This test will allow your physical therapist and physician know if you can return to full or light duty. FCEs can also determine the severity of your injuries. If your job requires heavy lifting, the FCE can determine the weight you can lift or if you can lift at all. FCEs can include:

  • Lifting and Carrying
  • Pushing/Pulling
  • Squatting or Kneeling
  • Walking
  • Bending
  • Sitting and Standing
  • Muscle Strength
  • Range of Motion

Your physical therapist will work with you to make sure that you are comfortable throughout each appointment. Once the evaluation is over, your physician can determine if you are ready to go back to work.
