Our physical and occupational therapists are trained to perform functional capacity evaluations (FCE’s) to assist employers, physicians, or insurance companies in determining the level of work activity an injured or diseased worker can achieve. An FCE medical consists of a detailed physical exam that includes a variety of functional capacity tests for patient recoveries, such as strength, range or motion, and sensory-motor testing, review of pertinent medical history, evaluation of endurance to specific work tasks, and more.
FCE for workers’ comp are common and the FCE exam results are communicated to both the physician and employer for consideration of the employee’s work responsibilities and to determine the best prognosis with recommendations of additional service if needed.
A functional capacity evaluation is also beneficial to attorneys, case managers, and vocation consultants by offering information for rulings of claims in short/long term disability and other disputes.

Welcome to Industrial Specialty Montgomery
As an industrial specialty for our physical therapy facility, PHOENIX Rehabilitation and Health Services is a return-to-work oriented provider. Studies now reﬂect a window from 4 weeks to 4 months as a critical benchmark where risks of long-term incapacity increase substantially1. Hence, the relationship between referral source, local industry, and the clinician is a crucial component in the critical task of returning an injured employee to work safely as well as in an efficient time frame1. 1 Orthopaedic Section-APTA, (2011) Guideline: Occupational Health Physical Therapy: Advanced Work Rehabilitation Guidelines Learn how you can take advantage of our Montgomery location’s Industrial Specialty services...
