  • An objective functional assessment of an injured employee/worker conducted by a physical therapist of their functional abilities to perform work-related tasks. The work capability assessment is performed as part of a medical office visit to identify the employee/worker’s capabilities compared to a specific job after an injury. A detailed functional job analysis of the physical essential functions of the job is very helpful in this assessment. If a functional job analysis is not available the verbal description provided by the injured worker is used for the assessment. (30 minutes)

Components include aerobic endurance, strength and flexibility activities and job simulation. Workers are educated in proper posture, safe body mechanics, self management of their symptoms, prevention of injury and home exercises. The program can range from 1-2 hour sessions 3-5 days/week depending on the need and lasting anywhere from 1-3 months. The program can be used in conjunction with light duty, modified duty or restricted duty as well as pre-return to work. A detailed job description is required to simulate job tasks during the program.
  • A comprehensive objective functional test that directly measures a person’s ability to perform a broad-range of physical tasks. This evaluation is conducted by a licensed physical therapist.
