Work Hardening & Work Conditioning
Work Hardening & Work Conditioning is a personalized, simulated set of exercises relating to your job. Once you have regained enough of your strength and range of motion from your physical therapy, you’ll be ready to start getting your endurance back for work.
Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE)
FCE’s need to be performed by specially certified physical therapists. Premier Physical Therapy is Chicago’s #1 choice for Functional Capacity Evaluations.
Functional Capacity Evaluations are a comprehensive analysis of your range of motion, endurance to work related tasks and strength. These tests are requested by Doctors, Attorneys, Workers Compensations Insurances, Employers,Disability, Social Security and more. However, the most common is for it to be requested by your Doctor or WC insurance to see if you can safely perform your job.
If this test is done before you’ve had much physical therapy, it is often used to develop your plan of care. FCE’s are most often requested towards the end of the treatment of your work injury to see if you are able to return to work on light, medium or normal duty. Just because you may be released to work, does not mean that your treatment is over or that you have achieved Maximum Medical Improvement.
