FCEs (Functional Capacity Exam) can be scheduled within a 24-hour notice and the report will be faxed to the desired location within 1 hour of exam completion.   

At Family Care PT we implement a work hardening rehabilitation program designed to restore functional and work capacities to the injured worker through application of graded work simulation.*Included are activities designed to improve overall physical condition, including strength, endurance, and coordination specific to work activity, as well as means for coping with any remaining symptoms from the original problem. Central to all work hardening programs is the reproduction of a work-like environment where tasks are designed to improve patient tolerance for productive work.
