Restoration Physiotherapy is committed to providing an impartial, valid, and defensible FCE to both parties.

  • Impartial and objective testing is found in the XRTS FCE. Please see the articles section for relevant research.
  • We also provide FCE report analysis- a licensed physical therapist experienced in objective testing can highlight where flawed science may have been used.
  • Deposition preparation- We assist in developing lines of questioning that will reveal common methods of testing and their strengths/weaknesses.

  • Expert Testimony- available upon retainment.
  • CLE presentation- If you would like to have a CLE presentation discussing FCE testing, please contact our office.


  • Employers

    We offer many services that will help you avoid injuries and manage them if they do occur. Each solution can be implemented independently for immediate benefits or together as a complete approach.

    The programs we offer include:

    • Functional Job Analysis (FJA)- hire us to create an accurate, defensible template of core job requirements from on-site analysis. Once template is created, it can be administered by the client organization or Restoration Physio for new hires in a pre-offer protocol rather than a post-offer, pre-placement medical examination. The burden of proof as to whether an applicant can perform the essential functions of the job rests on the applicant. After a conditional job offer, an employer has the burden to prove that the applicant cannot safely perform the essential functions of the job.
    • Fit for duty testing- this may go by various names but we use it to mean testing of current employees for fitness of duty. Usually once a year, employees will be evaluated on their ability to meet their position’s FJA(above). This is a quick and easy way to identify areas to address and to keep valuable employees healthy.
    • Physical Therapy- We use an approach to physical therapy thats assesses and treats movement limitations across the skeleton. By restoring expected movement, pain is often reduced or eliminated. Clinical experience has shown that this reduces time in the clinic 30-60%. We expect the client to invest in the therapeutic approach and comply with home exercise, but we are committed to their success and assure they know the ‘how and why’. See the Postural Restoration Institute for more information on this therapeutic approach. When needed, we also will utilize more ‘traditional’ treatments.

  • Functional Capacity Evaluations- We use the XRTS FCE. It is the only defensible and most accurate FCE available. Research supported sincerity-of-effort testing will enable you to know whether or not a client gave their best effort.
  • INERTIA work conditioning program- Our work conditioning program is typically 2-4 weeks in duration, 4 hours per day, 5 days a week. This approach has many advantages- Baseline testing is performed on day one and remeasured on day 10 and day 20 (if needed). 77% of participants meet job demands within 4 weeks. If your client requires treatment beyond 4 weeks there is no charge. This allows you to budget for treatment
