DON’T FIGHT AGAINST...

The DREADED ACL STATISTICS.

An ACL injury doesn't signify the end of your athletic journey. At ORKA Performance, our comprehensive 360-degree rehab approach ensures a confident return to your sport and peak performance.

Mirroring the care given to professional athletes, our program includes sports medicine, physiotherapy, strength & conditioning, recovery, and more. We understand the emotional toll of injury, so we've created a team-like environment to prevent isolation during the rehabilitation process.

Our experience with hundreds of ACL reconstructions has shaped our meticulous systems and framework, leaving no detail unchecked in your recovery journey.

ATHLETES THAT HAVE TRUSTED US!

HERE IS WHY OUR

ACL REHABILITATION SETS YOU UP FOR SUCCESS, THE FIRST TIME AROUND.

WE MAP OUT THE JOURNEY SO YOU KNOW EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

Rehab can be overwhelming with tons of misinformation out there. On your discovery call and in your first assessment you will leave knowing that the important details are taken care of. Every question you have will be answered and your car will be packed to start the journey.

WE FOCUS ON THE BIG ROCKS FIRST.

Early wins in rehab are crucial. It’s imperative that we get our full range of motion and swelling taken care of as soon as possible. Landing this win early sets us up for success through the rehab. The sooner we get this, the quicker we can start to load the knee joint and begin running.

ACCESS TO OUR SPORTS REHAB MEMBERSHIP.

Within our rehab membership model, you get unlimited access to our facility for the a price that won’t break the bank. These Rehab Gyms will let you rehab your injury 5 days per week. What this gives us is incredible outcomes and getting you back to the sport you love, faster. You can jump straight into the Rehab Membership right after surgery.

WE MANAGE A SMOOTH TRANSITION INTO YOUR MID-STAGE REHAB.

At most physiotherapy clinics, once you reach this stage you are referred to another facility to start your mid-stage rehab. At ORKA, you will have met your strength coach in your first week at the facility and this leads to a smooth transition where you feel beyond comfortable in the facility.

No need to learn new systems, rules, etc. The only thing that changes is your coach and programming progress.

ACCESS TO A STATE OF THE ART RECOVERY ROOM.

It’s no secret that recovery is just as important as training. That is why we give everyone in our rehab membership unlimited access to our Recovery Room powered by Hyperice. Here you will find recovery modalities like the Normatec Boots, Hypervolt Recovery Gun, and the Hyperice X Contrast Device. This is a key piece to maintaining a robust training volume.

WE MANAGE YOUR ENTIRE TRANSITION BACK TO SPORT.

When you hit this part of your rehab journey, things get really exciting. You are starting your transition back to sport. During this time you will have gone through rehab runs/field sessions and your full return to sport block is complete. We will communicate all aspects of your rehab and how it can be a smooth transition to your sport coaches.

This can even include routine neuromuscular testing to ensure you’re performing at your best.

WE USE STATE OF THE ART TESTING EQUIPMENT TO GUIDE EVERY DECISION.

If you’re not measuring, you’re guessing. We have invested heavily into state of the art equipment from VALD Performance to measure and monitor every step of the way.

With this equipment we can know the strength, asymmetries, and how we move down to the Newton (measure of force). During a rehab process like this, we can’t afford to guess on next steps or if you’re ready for a return to sport.

OUR SYSTEMS BASED REHAB PHASING

OUR SYSTEMS BASED REHAB PHASING

At ORKA Performance we have developed a 5 stage rehabilitation pathway that ensures you are successful at every stage. Our system has been developed to tackle every key performance indicator that is found in your testing during every block in our rehab system.

Image

01. FOUNDATION PHASE

The Foundation Phase is arguably the most important phase in ACL rehabilitation, this is due to the work needed to lay the foundation, and the primary tissue healing taking place. It is imperative that we get 3 things done ASAP. This would be our extension, quadriceps contracton and elimination of swelling. You can read more about the early stage rehabilitation frequency below.

Image

02. TISSUE INTEGRATION

During the Tissue Integration Phase, we focus on restoring muscle mass post-surgery, emphasizing essential lifting patterns for strength. Simultaneously, the Gait Continuum progresses, setting the groundwork for our systematic Return to Run Protocol at ORKA. We evaluate your progress against our Return to Run Criteria at the phase's conclusion. Repetition is pivotal for a smooth transition to mid-stage rehab, and athletes experience optimal outcomes in our Fixed Fee Rehab Program, also known as the Sports Rehab Membership.

Image

03. STRENGTH CAPACITY

In the Strength Capacity Phase, our Return to Run Framework is implemented, marking the transition from rehab to training. Under the guidance of strength and conditioning specialists, we focus on developing maximum strength, incorporating linear runs, and progressing to off-line change of direction drills if tolerated. Members of the Sports Rehabilitation Membership retain access to both Rehab Gyms and Rehab Runs. Athletes in the youth, collegiate, semi-pro, or professional category enter the OPP, while others transition to the Performance Arm of the Sports Rehabilitation Membership.

Image

04. TRANSITION TO CHAOS

The Transition to Chaos Phase is a really exciting block for our athletes. This is where we see a return to aspects of technical training. Through well thought out progressions, you will gain confidence in your knee through advanced unilateral plyometrics, increased change of direction intensity, reactive agility, max velocity, and power development.

Image

05. RETURN TO SPORT

We've reached the culmination of our journey. In this phase, we transition back to full-capacity training, preparing for a complete return to sport upon clearance from a comprehensive performance testing framework. This stage focuses on education, maintaining progress, and regular neuromuscular testing to monitor crucial aspects. Given the risk of re-rupture, we advise routine testing every 3-4 months throughout one's athletic career, acknowledging that the average re-rupture occurs around 2 years post-surgery.
