Job specific FCEs are a type of customized FCE conducted by Green Tree Rehabilitation that identifies the gap and/or barriers between an individual's functional capacity and the job demands/expectations of their job.

Pain and discomfort in the workplace can be addressed by an ergonomic assessment.
