Your fish is suffering from Swim Bladder Disorder.
The swim bladder is the organ a fish has that is used to help keep a fish balanced. Apparently your's cory's swim bladder has become impacted or filled with air.

The recommended treatment is a medicine called Maracyn combined with feeding some peas. Canned peas without the husk are perfect. The peas will help clean out the fish's swim bladder.

Good luck!
