Our Return to Work program consists of four components:

- Return-to-work testing
- Functional capacity evaluation (FCE)
- Work conditioning
Injury Management Services.
Preventing injury is one of the foremost goals of the Valir Healthforce program. Injury prevention seminars are available to provide safety education customized to meet the specific needs of our clients.
An critical component of effectively managing injured employees is providing a systematic process to ensure your employees are fit to return to their job or modified duties without an increase in liability upon their return. This program returns injured workers to work safely, reduces lost time and lowers costs.
Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE).
A functional capacity evaluation is a process of measuring, recording and analyzing an injured worker’s ability to perform functional work activities and tolerance in the work environment. The evaluation is used to compare baseline data, document existing impairments, improve consistency and create realistic objective treatment goals and return-to-work recommendations. Our FCE results are reported in a format that is clear, concise, and are available within 48 hours.
The Valir Work Conditioning program is a medically monitored and individually progressed work-based program designed to restore a client’s strength, endurance, movement and flexibility. Work Conditioning focuses on intense reconditioning and body retraining, which will prepare the employee for the rigors of full-time duty.
Physicians, employers or insurance companies may refer workers to our Return to Work programs.
