Functional Capacity Evaluations for Daily Life, Work, and Sports


Our comprehensive suite of services includes Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE), a specialized assessment designed to measure an individual's ability to perform essential tasks in daily life, work, or sports.

FCEs are particularly useful for individuals recovering from injuries, surgeries, or musculoskeletal conditions. Whether you're seeking to return to work, resume sports activities, or enhance your overall functionality, our FCEs provide a detailed understanding of your physical capabilities and limitations. These evaluations serve as a crucial tool in tailoring personalized rehabilitation plans, guiding us in designing exercises and therapies that specifically address your unique needs. Testing involves a series of tests and measures to determine an individual's ability to perform work-related tasks, such as lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, and repetitive movements.


A permanent partial disability examination, often referred to as a PPD exam, is an evaluation used to assess the extent of permanent impairment resulting from a work-related injury or illness. These exams are conducted by qualified medical professionals and are used to determine the level of disability a person has sustained because of their injury. The results of a PPD exam play a crucial role in determining the amount of compensation an individual may be entitled to receive under workers' compensation laws.

At Canyon Lake Physical Therapy, we're dedicated to empowering you on your path to recovery and helping you regain the strength and functionality required for a life lived to the fullest.
