Client Testimonials

Learn about patient experiences at Vulcan Performance below.
"...about week 3 [of physical therapy], I told my wife, 'It's getting a little better!' It [my back] would not bother me in the beginning of the day. Towards the end, it would start hurting. And then by week 4, I said, 'I don't have any pain.' I had no pain all day. And that was 6 to 8 weeks ago. I've been pain free. So I've got the severe spinal stenosis of L2 still. That's not going away. It's arthritis. But because of the insightful analysis - physical workup - by Sean [Hiller] and his prescription of certain exercises, for now I'm avoiding surgery, and I'm very very happy."

" I don't have headaches very often anymore. I'm able to workout on my and own and do things I wasn't able to do before. And just every day, I'm able to sleep... I like that it's a lot of one-on-one [physical therapy] and not big groups trying to do the same thing at once, because at other physical therapy places... there'd be a lot of people there at one time... Here I'm able to make adjustments and Sean's able to adjust different things depending on how I'm feeling that day..."

"My shoulders are fully recovered. I feel amazing. Did that mean I stop coming in here? No. I said next let's work on my knees! I've got stability issues... whether it's my knees, whether it's my ankles, whether it's my shoulders, Sean has challenged the muscles on top of those ligaments to help me recover, be in a position of strength going into 40... and that's exciting for me."
