What is a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)?

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is an independent assessment carried out by an experienced Physiotherapist to determine an injured person’s capacity to do certain tasks. These tasks can be things we do on a daily basis or tasks to return to work after being injured in a motor vehicle accident, work place injury or even post surgery.
