About Us

Vulcan Performance was founded in 2017 in Birmingham, Alabama by Alabama native Sean Hiller. He began the company with a focus on research-backed one-on-one physical therapy, dedicated to giving the highest quality of service and care possible to each patient. Sean's vision was to begin a business where physical therapists could help individuals not only overcome pain or injuries they were experiencing but also enhance their overall quality of life.

Since opening, the Vulcan team has expanded to two locations and helped countless individuals overcome physical obstacles and enhance what moves them. Scroll down more to learn more about our incredible team!
