I worked with Brendan. He was super thorough with explaining my payment options, and was kind in keeping lines of communication open with me in case I had any additional questions. And I had a TON of questions. So thanks for your patience haha. I went in for my initial session where Brendan thoroughly assessed (and explained--both in PT jargon and every day English) what could be the potentially causes for my pain, and also what could be done to ease the pain. Like I said, this wasn't a major injury, but a chronic issue that I was hoping to manage and get under control. From there, we talked about a suitable treatment plan.
Throughout the sessions that I went to over the course of the next couple of months, Brendan helped strengthen my weak points, and gave me exercises to work on at home to continue that work. Each session was always a good challenge (ha-ha to my poor strength), and was also just super chill to talk and catch up with Brendan. I got stronger, and learned certain techniques to curb my pain.
All in all, I'd highly recommend going to Kauno. They make an effort to make you feel comfortable, and they're great people!

This was a great experience. Tiara was wonderful to work with -- really thoughtful -- and I saw big improvements much more quickly than I thought I would. Also, at one point something was screwy with my insurance, and the office was extremely accommodating about helping figure it out. Huge thank-you to Tiara.

Brian's great. Active listener that knew exactly where to begin his discovery process after I described my injury. Ran me through various tests and asked questions that got me to clarify as much as possible what was ailing me. Knew how to approach the injury and prescribed exercises to help alleviate the pain. Trust the process and be consistent. Definitely will be seeing him more often and I recommend everyone else do as well.

I was searching for a PT to help me rehab from a laminectomy late last year and found Kauno through my insurance database. I was nervous because the recovery process was new and unknown to me, but Brian made me feel comfortable and confident in his treatment plan from the first time we met. Over the 6 weeks I saw him he did a great job of incorporating manual therapy with exercises into my sessions and home care which helped me transition back into my regular routine. He was very thorough and made sure to address all parts of my lifestyle that were affected by my recovery from washing my face to running again. Brian has a warm and friendly personality which made the whole process so much more pleasant. I would highly recommend Brian! He made a traumatic time in my life positive and pain-free!

I saw Brian for a running issue with my knee. He identified the underlying problem and helped me to strengthen muscles to address it while also dealing with the downstream effects. I can once again run without pain now! I would use Kauno again.

Kauno is an excellent place to help you with your mobility issues. My colleague saw Brian for her injuries and recommended me to see him. I have learned that Kauno is a young business in a heart of SOMA, with experienced PT doctors, who built the place with their own hands. The team is highly knowledgeable, friendly and positive, which helps to relax and makes it easier for your body to heal. I am working with Brian on multiple accumulated issues and he is simply just great. Super smart, focused and attentive. Like I was recommended to see Brian, I am recommending to anyone who is reading, to not wait and keep thinking that it will pass. For me it didn't and I am grateful that my body issues are finally getting better.

I worked with Brian King on some persistent lower-back pain. He listened, worked out a plan, including an estimate ending date, and we got down to business. No PT is actually "enjoyable," but I looked forward to my sessions at Kauno. We revised the workouts as needed, I learned a lot about what to pay attention to and what I could do to avoid future problems. In a few months, on schedule, we were done. He and his co-founder Brendan Clarke, who covered for Brian on a couple of occasions, really know what they're doing, and they run a low-key place with top-notch skills.

I went to Brendan after having issues with my knee and he he helped me get back my range of motion and gave me specific stretches and exercises to do to achieve a full recovery. He was super helpful and patient in answering all of my questions and concerns. In addition to all of that, he was very honest with me and let me know when I was at a point where he thought I no longer needed to go in for appointments and could just do the exercises on my own at home.

As a studio, Kauno is a dope place. Well thought out, built by the business duo, good natural light coming in from large front window, and with all the things a physical therapy studio should have. I went to a previous PT with a sterile, doctor-esque kind of a feel, I much prefer Kauno.
If you have any type of pain and have been trying to find a good PT or even have seen many PT's that didn't help at all.. you have come to the right place!!!
Brian is SERIOUSLY AMAZING! I've had knee pain for about 1.5 years. I have seen a total of 5 different PT's and all of them helped here and there, but my knee pain kept coming back. Brian is very very experienced and within 2 months I barely have any knee pain left. He is very patient, knows how to treat anything, and really can help. I thank Brian everyday for giving me my drug back - allowing me to run again! I PROMISE you will not be disappointed. Trust me, I have seen a total of 5 different PT's and finally was going to give up. After doing some research I thought why not give it one last try... SERIOUSLY guys he is A M A Z I N G. All the other PT's would focus on my knee since it was where the pain was coming from.. Brian focused on my hips, making sure they were strong because my knee was overcompensating for tight/weak hips.
