Home Health Physical Therapy
If you are looking for home health physical therapy (PT) in Midland, Odessa, Andrews, Kermit, Monahans, or other outlying areas, NursEx Home Health can help. We will work with you and your physician to develop a home exercise program and plan of care that is just right for you, personalized to your needs and specific condition. Our physical therapists have decades of experience in their field and have the knowledge to help you be successful. They hold many degrees and certifications including PT, DPT, PTA, MBA, SCS/OCS, COMT, CSCS, MDT, and specialize in Graston Technique. The physical therapists and physical therapy assistants work hand in hand to provide the best care possible to you.
The physical therapist at NursEx will also assess the home for safety issues. There may be rugs that need to be removed to make navigation with a cane or walker more feasible. Perhaps there is a need for safety rails in the bath. Even if a patient needs a ramp to accommodate a wheelchair, our therapist can identify those needs.

IllnessIf you are recovering from a long illness, your muscles might need physical therapy to become strong again. After being ill, sometimes patients need help learning to transfer safely back and forth from bed to chairs, or to a wheelchair. You may need to learn to use a walker to get around safely, and what precautions you should take in your home to use assistive devices without incident. NursEx Home Health’s physical therapy department can help restore functional mobility, build endurance, and decrease pain and difficulty while ambulating.
FallsFalls account for about 25% of all hospital admissions. Many times, these falls occur in the home. Physical therapy can help with balance issues and unsteady gait, which often lead to falling. Holding onto walls or furniture while moving around the home is a sign that someone might be having trouble maintaining their balance. Our physical therapists can work with your physician to design a care plan that will improve balance and gait and reduce the chance of frequent falls.
