Physio Back to Work

What is Functional Capacity Evaluation?

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is the targeted solution for employers, law firms, and insurance companies seeking to make informed decisions about an individual's return to work. At our clinic, we stand out as the sole provider in Western Canada utilizing cutting-edge computerized testing technologies (EvalTech). This innovative approach is superior to traditional methods, as it equips our clients with real data to inform their decisions.

Tailored specifically for employers, law firms, and insurance companies, our FCE service provides a comprehensive assessment designed to evaluate an individual's physical capabilities post-medical leave or injury. Through objective measurements of job-specific tasks, our evaluations offer invaluable insights into workforce readiness while also serving to determine the extent of injuries and how an individual's daily life has been affected. This information is crucial for accurately assessing future cost of living.

Our primary objective is to empower decision-makers with the information needed to make strategic choices regarding job assignments and accommodations, thereby ensuring a smooth and secure return-to-work process.

What to Expect During a Functional Capacity Evaluation 

Your case is very important to us. When it comes to FCE’s, you can trust our team of therapists to provide you with a thorough examination.


In the case of a referral, we will have your medical records and supplementary materials (x-rays, etc.) provided. Otherwise, please bring those records at the time of your evaluation.

A typical FCE takes between 3-5 hours but can sometimes last longer. During the evaluation, the examinee will be required to complete our intake questionnaires and then be asked to perform a variety of activities to determine functional status. Each testing protocol is demonstrated using safe and proper biomechanics by the assessor prior to each test.


After the evaluation is completed, the data will be reviewed by the assessor and compiled into a detailed report as it pertains to the requests of each client.
