Allied Services Clinician Earns Advanced Certification in Vestibular Rehabilitation

Allied Services‘ Kori Wood, DPT, recently earned the Advanced Vestibular Physical Therapist Certification (AVPT) from the University of Pittsburgh. The AVPT Certification is a post-professional certification program for physical therapists who want to become experts in vestibular rehabilitation. Wood completed rigorous coursework and demonstrated clinical competency skills to achieve the advanced certification. 

Vestibular rehabilitation is a type of physical therapy commonly used for conditions such as vertigo and labyrinthitis that focuses on improving the relationship between the inner ear, brain, eyes, muscles, and nerves. The therapy can also reduce the risk of falling and improve balance, body strength, and the patient’s ability to stabilize vision.

Wood, who is a Montrose native, joined Allied Services in 2005. She currently treats patients at Allied Services Luger Scranton Rehab Center and has extensive experience in treating balance and vestibular disorders, back and neck pain, and orthopedic injuries and conditions.
