I got a copy of my fce but cant tell much about it where on it will it tell your rating or % of disability
RE: ? on fce - AQA - 10-02-2007 06:52 PM
I have had 4 fce's. The first three say nothing about my rating or % of disability. They all listed prentages such as range of motion. The fourth fce is the one that I am waiting for. That one was done when I being rated for impairment.

mine has range of motion but it says oswestry score was 54% do u know what that is

The Oswestry questionaire was designed to indicate how you percieve your injury has effected your life/abilities. Mine says 62/crippled. I had to do four questionaires after my third fce. I mean I had to start them five minutes after the fce. With that being said, all my responces were while I was in pain.

FCE's don't usually show an Injury Rating, they are more for range of motion, and what you can and can't Physically do, basically Your Restrictions, if any. If they are going to give You an Impairment Rating, they will state what they are doing, known as an IRE (Inpairment Rating Exam). They are two different things. Have a Great Day, and I Hope Your Day is Pain Free!

I have a silly question. Since my husband had a few FCE's that I wasn't aware of and he never knew the outcome and after 4 previous WC injuries I myself have never had one my question is this. Just supposing you can do something but it hurts like all H&^* to do it how do you get an accurate FCE. I know this sounds dumb but I have had it happen to me many times by PT's doing thier report fo rthe Dr. Mainly my shoulder it's been done with. They will puch it to the max even though I am telling them they are killing me and then write that number down for the Dr. Am I making sense?? Any opingions on this or has anyone had PT's do this to them??

The guy that done mine was really nice and he didnt have me doing any thing that hurt I tried really hard to do every thing he ask but if it hurt he had me stop I didnt take any thing for pain starting the night before so that it would be a true test

HEY CAP,NOT A SILLY QUESTION,I HAD AN FCE AND WAS ABLE TO PERFORM ALL OF THE TASKS BUT WITH ALOT OF PAIN AND COULD NOT DO ANYTHING FOR THREE DAYS AFTER DUE TO INCREASED PAIN LEVELS.THE PEOPLE THAT DO FCE'S NEED TO DO FOLLOW UP APOINTMENTS AFTER THE FCE TO GET AN IDEA IF THE PATIENT IS ABLE TO PERFORM THESE ACTIVITIES ON A CONTINUOUS BASIS AND NOT JUST FOR ONE DAY BEFORE THEY RECOMMEND RESTRICTIONS TO THE DOCTOR...EXAMPLE,I USED TO BE ABLE TO SPLIT FIRE WOOD ALL DAY FOR ONE DAY AND WAS PRETTY SORE FOR A DAY OR TWO AFTER,BUT I DON'T THINK I COULD DO IT 5 DAYS A WEEK,8 HOURS A DAY EVEN WHEN I WAS HEALTHY AND HAD NO INJURY...SEE WHAT I MEAN!!!!!!!
