What Happens at A Functional Capacity Evaluation?
This evaluation will occur over the course of three days to get an accurate picture of your capabilities and pain levels over time and after certain activities. On day one your history will be taken as well as a comprehensive examination. After that, the tests performed will be scientifically and medically proven to be quality indicators of your level of functionality. We will receive a detailed job description from your place of employment, and perform our tests accordingly. We practice standard FCE protocol by VerNova for uniformity and quality.
A physical therapist will aid you through and record the results of your computerized VCE test. You will be tested specifically on your ability to perform specific tests from the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. These tests will include flexibility, range of motion, strength, endurance, cardiovascular health and more. You and your chiropractor will review your results before they are sent to another party. The results will inform of your return to work status, a recommendation that may include approval, and the patient's current level of functionality.
The appointments are not invasive and are only designed to test the limits of the patient. They should not be painful, and the physical therapist, chiropractor, or doctor will take your comfort into consideration as you prove your ability to perform certain tasks.
