Megan Fain, PT, DPT
Megan Fain is a Licensed Physical Therapist specializing in Industrial Rehabilitation after graduating with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Regis University. Megan is passionate about helping clients navigate the intricacies of the recovery process from Acute PT’s focus on tissue recovery to Work Conditioning/Hardening. This includes the need for ongoing client education to facilitate understanding of one’s current condition as well as a focus on lifelong health. It is with enthusiasm that she also embraces the opportunity to be the Clinic Director at PINN Puyallup. In this position, she uses her knowledge, creativity, and compassion to assist clients and other clinicians to provide efficient and effective treatment plans that keep clients engaged in the recovery process.
Prior to joining PINN, Megan spent seven years working in a variety of states and settings including outpatient orthopedics, home health, skilled nursing facilities, and hospitals as a Travel PT. This allowed her the unique opportunity to understand a variety of factors influencing rehabilitation including clients’culture, experiences, and workplace obstacles. During her travels, she was recognized for her excellence in teaching and was offered a position at OPSU in the Business Administration Department and Health and Wellness Department. Simultaneously she also accepted the responsibility to develop a rehabilitation department for a Kansas hospital. She used her undergraduate degrees in business finance and economics, as well as prior professional experience, to facilitate this transition prior to leaving the Midwest and relocating to Washington state.

Favorite saying: “We aren’t Mr. Potato-Heads when we go to work. We don’t take off a body part and leave it at home to watch TV so we have to look at the function of the entire kinetic chain to get you Back to Life and Back to Work!”
