An FCE is an evaluation performed to determine an individual’s ability to return to work safely. It is a tool most often utilized after an injury or for pre-employment screening. It can also be utilized as an adjunct for disability determinations and to establish treatment plans and/or monitor progress with industrial rehabilitation.

An FCE typically requires 3-4 hours and involves many physical tests which must be observed, recorded and extrapolated to an 8-hour day. An FCE should be safe, objective, feasible, reliable and valid while also pertaining to "real world" demands.

There are three categories of FCE:

  • Comprehensive (Any Occupation) - Testing is done to determine what occupation a worker can do based on the 20 physical demands described by the Department of Labor, Dictionary of Occupational Titles (D.O.T.)
  • Occupation Specific FCE - Testing comprised of job demands for a specific job title as listed in the D.O.T. (any generic type of work)
  • Job Specific FCE - Tests only the demands listed in the clients specific job description.

Carolina Physical Therapy Associates performs a thorough musculoskeletal evaluation on each client as part of the FCE process. This information is then correlated to function and a comparison is made between these measures and function to assist in determining client effort with testing and ability to perform and/or return to prior work levels.
