A physical therapist’s days are spent treating back-to-back-to-back patients while completing seemingly endless documentation. It’s tough to find time to eat lunch, let alone review the latest literature or attend high-quality continuing education courses. There is very little that is as frustrating as finally investing your time and money to attend a class, only to find that the instructor is out of touch with day-to-day physical therapy practice.

Who We Are
Christina Durrough, PT, DPT, NCS co-founded Rehab Knowledge Advantage and instructs the NCS Advantage prep course. She works with a wide range of patients with neurologic dysfunction at Vanderbilt Pi Beta Phi Rehabilitation Institute. In addition to clinical practice, Chrissy participates in research and teaching responsibilities pertaining to various aspects of neurologic physical therapy practice. Chrissy graduated from Ohio State University’s Doctorate of Physical Therapy program and completed the Vanderbilt and Belmont University neurologic residency program. She obtained distinction as a Neurologic Clinical Specialist in 2014. The lack of direction available for preparing for the NCS exam motivated her to develop a study program that was passed along to and improved by Melissa Dygulski. This study program has evolved to become the first course offering of Rehab Knowledge Advantage – the NCS Advantage.
Chrissy lives in Nashville, TN. Her dog, Huckleberry, is her favorite thing in the world. She also loves her family, friends, house, and the Buckeyes.

Currently, Melissa works as an outpatient neurologic physical therapist for St. Thomas Health and as an adjunct professor at Belmont University in Nashville, TN.
In her personal life, Melissa enjoys spending time with her husband, friends, and, most of all, her two fur-babies, Jackson and Murphy.
