Following an injury, physical limitations may exist immediately or develop over time. Establishing the client’s safe maximum abilities once the benefits of physical rehabilitation have plateaued, an FCE is ideal for further planning and goal setting with respect to return to work, vocational exploration or other meaningful activities. (i.e. sitting tolerance, overhead reaching)
At a reduced combined cost, the Physical FCE can be combined with a Cognitive/Behavioural FCE to determine Global Functioning.
