HERE FOR YOU
DOUG ADAMS, PT, DPT, SCS, OCS, CSCS
Why Omega Project? I have been building towards this my whole life! The reason I got into Physical Therapy (PT) was because I had "shin splints" running in high school. That injury experience showed me how much of an impact PT can have on runners/endurance athletes.
In PT school (University of Delaware) I was lucky enough to learn running gait analysis under two of the worlds leading running researchers (Irene Davis and Rich Willy), which set me up for having great early success working with runners.
I continued to have a lot of questions about the best ways to treat runners, and was doing research on wearables and 3D Motion Analysis. I saw an opportunity to get even better results with runners, and created a way to use 3D Motion Analysis in a clinical setting.
Omega Project is an opportunity to take all that I have learned and created over the past decade and turn it into a place where runners and endurance athletes can come to get back to the sport they love quicker and even better than they imagined.
What are your hobbies and interests? My biggest interest is spending time with my family! I also enjoy running, triathlons, hiking, teaching, movies, and reading as much as I can.
What is something big you have coming up? (Besides Omega Project) I am prepping to get ready for a Boston Qualifier in 2018. I am also looking to try Ragnar Relay Trail runs and a Spartan race in 2019.

Why Omega Project? : Omega Project is really my dream come true! I have loved helping fellow runners since middle school, when I started running. I would learn as much as I could to help my teammates with their injuries. I value helping people feel their best, physically and mentally! Omega Project allows me to fully commit to that. I can spend one on one time with you and work for YOU to get you feeling your best.
What are some highlights of your experience as a physical therapist? : I graduated with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Duquesne University in 2008. Since graduating, I have worked toward specializing in treatment of lower extremity injuries and repetitive strain injuries. What that means is that I really enjoy treating those nagging injuries that just won't go away or keep coming back. I like to solve the mysteries that others have not been able to solve. I am very passionate about helping people continue doing what they love.
Tell us about your background in running : I started running in 7th grade. Right away I set my goal of running Division I on a scholarship and was fortunate to have many successes along the way. My main event was the steeplechase but I also ran cross-country and distance track events. My proudest moment was being able to run steeplechase at the Penn Relays and the NCAA Division I Regional Championships. I have since competed in triathlons and really enjoy being part of both the running and triathlon communities in Delaware.
What are some of your other hobbies? : I can honestly say I love learning. I read as much as I can. I also enjoy practicing mindfulness, yoga, hiking, traveling, and spending time with my niece and nephews.
Can you tell us a fun fact? : I have a twin sister, Shannon, who is a Certified Hand Therapist. I treat the legs, she treats the arms!
