Functional Capacity Evaluations
When is it safe for an injured worker to return to his or her post? Should they return to a full day’s work at the start, or come back in a limited capacity?
Employers can get assistance in finding the answers to these questions by having our team of specially trained and licensed physical therapists conduct a Functional Capacity Evaluation on the employee.
It is a detailed assessment of a person’s ability to function in their job. It can lead to their return to work in an appropriate fashion, or the closure of a case. It is an essential part of the process for worker’s compensation claims or disability claims.
