Sherry Young (Owner) has provided numerous lectures on the topics of chronic pain and functional capacity evaluations for occupational therapists, nurse case managers, doctors, and attorneys both here and abroad. Ms. Young has been extensively trained by Roy Matheson and Associates, the largest organization of its kind that certifies therapists in the administration of FCE’s. She has served on the Workman’s Compensation Treatment Guidelines Task Force for chronic pain and lower extremity.

I was injured at work about a year and a half ago. Dealing with some of the people through workman's comp has been a nightmare. Little did I know how much a person truly stands to lose if they are permanently injured at work. I was diagnosed with Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome. However, as time went on and cost went up, work comp has attempted to change my diagnosis and lessen my restrictions. With that being said, I chose to go to Starting Point to get a FCE to see where I truly am in terms of restrictions. Sherry is incredibly knowledgeable! I was nervous about how much pain I would be enduring throughout the FCE and worried that it would just be one more person who would sweep my CRPS under the rug. Wow was I wrong! Sherry educated me more about nerve damage and how the body is all interconnected and how each thing can affect the next. She was patient, compassionate, encouraging, and supportive. More importantly, she expected me to do exactly what I can, without slacking and without trying to push beyond my limitations. She was very adept at knowing when I was attempting to do more than I can. She set up realistic scenario's so that she could get a true picture of what my job entails. Furthermore, Sherry validated my condition and my frustration. She gave me encouragement and hope when I needed it most.
The bottom line is, if you need an FCE, Starting Point is where you need to go. Sherry is the best, most professional and most knowledgeable person to get this evaluation done through.
