Dr. Douglas MacCallum grew up in Long Beach, California and first became interested in the medical field when he observed the positive impact physical therapy had on his father when he was recovering from a total hip arthroplasty. Throughout college, Douglas worked as a physical therapist aid, volunteered in the Rehabilitation Department of Miller Children’s Hospital and participated in a two-week medical mission trip to Vietnam to serve the underprivileged community in 2015.
Douglas began his college career at Long Beach City College and transferred to California State University, Long Beach where he received his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. In 2019, he received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Elon University after completing his clinical rotations in central North Carolina, Johnson City, Tennessee and New York City, New York.
During his schooling at Elon, Douglas was involved in two research projects; a transcranial magnetic stimulation study on the effects music has on motor recruitment and collected data for Duke University’s K-Lab pre-injury screening for division 1 collegiate athletes.
Douglas is passionate about treating athletes of all levels of competition and loves to help endurance runners and lower extremity athletes achieve their goals. He is trained to analyze your running form via 2-D video analysis and 3-D motion capture to improve efficiency, reduce pain and risk of injury.
Douglas enjoys running, golf, competitive paintball, basketball and hiking. He supports the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Kings and the New York Giants.
