Functional Evaluations

Functional Capacity

A functional capacity evaluation is a unique analysis of a person usually after being injured at work. Howard Physical Therapy is proud to be one of the only facilities in Western New York to offer this type of testing. Our staff has more than 23 years of experience performing FCEs and relies on statistics and data when offering a professional recommendation. We identify behavioral factors such as symptom magnification when determining the potential of an injured worker. We take our testing format from the standards of the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board. Not only that, but our services have also been requested by national medical evaluation services and functional capacity networks, such as BTE, from across the country.
