Functional Capacity Evaluation Kennesaw, GA

Functional Capacity Evaluation

Do you have an injury that impacts your ability to return to your normal activities, including your job? Whether you were injured at the workplace or somewhere else, you may need to be released to return to work by a physician. A functional capacity evaluation, or FCE, is often requested by employers to ensure an employee is recovered from their injuries or as a diagnostic tool to determine the level of recovery. We offer FCEs at Medici Medical Arts for patients who are recovering from injuries.

An FCE involves a wide variety of tests that are designed to evaluate the function and pain level while performing certain activities. The tests are physical in nature, determining both the actual performance and pain level of the patient while performing these activities. Some of the common tests that are performed include:

  • Lifting
  • Pushing/pulling
  • Carrying
  • Reach
  • Balance
  • Crouching/crawling
  • Standing, walking, sitting
  • Hand grasping and manipulation

These tests can show how well a patient can tolerate and perform different movements with objective measurements. It also is used to measure pain levels while performing these different activities after an injury.

Workplace Injury Testing

FCE is commonly used when a workplace injury occurs. This testing is often a requirement when returning to work or to determine the level of disability when receiving workers’ compensation benefits. Our facility is qualified to perform functional capacity evaluations for our patients when requested by their employer or insurance company.

At Medici Medical Arts, we work with many patients who are recovering or going through rehabilitation from a workplace injury. We offer a full spectrum of diagnostic, treatment and evaluation options to help our patients through all stages of their recovery. If you need treatment for a workplace injury or have been instructed to undergo a functional capacity evaluation, contact us at one of our clinics in the greater Atlanta area to schedule an appointment.

We can help you!

Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

Tiffany

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
