Real Life Assessments, Treatments, and VALD Data Analytics with ORKA Education Facilitators.

Our Why

ORKA Education was built as a curated platform for allied health practitioners, where knowledge, systems and execution can lead to an immediate and direct impact on patient outcomes. When we took a look at the current landscape of continuing education offerings across the fields, we felt it was packed full of courses that purely taught pain modulatory techniques, and it revealed gaps in several topics we felt crucial for optimizing client outcomes in the long-term, and that allowed practitioners to navigate the entire rehabilitation journey. The goal at ORKA Education is to provide a focused educational curriculum and tactical framework, centered around rehabilitation and performance principles.

Experience the ORKA Education Ecosystem's inaugural virtual offering with our engaging ORKA Practicals. Each session promises to be an enlightening educational journey, providing you with instant takeaways to seamlessly integrate into your professional practice. By participating, you'll be equipped to deliver optimal outcomes, empowering your clients and athletes to attain their rehabilitation and performance goals. Join us as we navigate the intersection of knowledge and practical application for a transformative learning experience.

We are so excited to expand our reach in the rehab & performance space and we hope you enjoy being apart of ORKA Practicals.

End Stage Assessment and Interpretation

The modules



Learning all about the female athlete and how we as therapists/coaches can support our athletes and clients further. This module will take a deep dive into the menstrual cycle, it's phases, and how we can be hormonally aware for our athletes.



Business is incredibly hard and this module will go through all the lessons, wins, and failures that have lead us to where we are today. This will go through our client retention system, sales conversations, aquisition strategies, and methods that have worked for us.



This module is a staple within plinth to podium. We will outline everything needed to be successful in the early stages of performance rehab. This will go through our foundation and tissue integration phase while outlining exactly how we manage different athletes in this phase.



From start to finish we will go through exactly how we get our athletes moving days after surgery with our linear gait mechanic continuum. Then we will dive into all things speed development and how to put the icing on the cake for all your athletes and clients.



Strength and conditioning principles, periodization models, force velocity curve application, objective metrics in s&c, programming systems, exercise selection through strength capacity phasing, building the performance puzzle.



One of the most popular modules on p2p. In performance testing we will through our entire testing protocol for all of the main injuries we see at orka. This will go through capacity based testing, psychological readiness, and the entire suite of vald performance products and how we analyze and make decisions with the data.



Often times this is one of the most neglected aspects of performance based rehabilitation. In this block you will learn all things change of direction and how we prepare the athlete for more complex agility based programming.



Is conditioning the forgotten sibling in strength and conditioning? Most of the time it is. We will dive into our energy system models and how we implement the concept of mas with our athletes to individualize the prescription of conditioning.



"What the team over here at ORKA has done is just so incredible. I think it’s so much more above and beyond, it’s really where the rehab industry needs to be from a systems stand point, from a team standpoint, from a culture standpoint. I really took a lot away from a systems standpoint and also stuff that you can just put into practice right away. It really is all there. It’s something that truly should transform anyones practice.

I honestly feel like the guys and the team here are taking the industry to a place that it absolutely needs to be. “

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this online course work?

ORKA Practicals is a virtual offering with lifetime access to the content through our educational platform. Each practical comes with a foundational theoretical pillar section, a core module section, and resource section. This course is at your own pace and can be completed at any time.

How is this course different from other resources on the market?

When we set out to develop ORKA Practicals, the core framework was addressing the what, the so what, and the now what. These practicals are with live patients from facilitators with real imperfections, who have identified their own blindspots and worked to upskill their skill sets to take a comprehensive approach to assessment, management, and overall periodization of the rehab journey. The ultimate goal is for you to leave these practicals with more answers than questions.

Is this course only for physiotherapists?

Through the foundational pillars provided and the workflow of the course, these practicals should ressonate with anybody in allied health including; physiotherapists, strength & conditioning coaches, kinesiologists, exercise physiologists, chiropractors, personal trainers, and physicians.

Do I need to take any pre-requisite courses or be in practice as a practitioner for a certain period of time before I take the course?

Not at all. There's no preliminary requirements, and all levels of practitioner are welcome.

Can I get a refund?

We are confident in our systems and frameworks, and have seen them work well in practice. So much so, we offer a money back guarantee. A full refund would be commensurate on the demonstration of participation within the courses, and application/utilization of the course material.

Do I need to do the Foundational Pillars Section?

The foundational pillars section was curated to try and close the gaps in knowledge across a wide array of professions and levels of competency. This section is recommended if any of the terminology framework or nomenclature is foreign to a participant as they are completing the core modules.
