Welcome to the NPT HealthWorks Blog!

Hi everyone,

1st of all, thanks for checking out our new blog!

My name is Dr. Dan (Insta: @drdanhatch) and I’m the founder of NPT HealthWorks. Just under 5 years ago, with the help of then sports massage intern Maddie (Insta: @madeline_bassinder), we launched then Newport Physical Therapy and have grown it into a thriving and all-encompassing value-based health and wellness business with 8 amazing team members. Our team is passionate about what we do and about our community; and we have a fun and contagious company culture.

The team and I will be discussing all things health and wellness with the sole intention of helping you make informed and better decisions for yourself and your loved ones.

We’ll share stories, opinions, thoughts, and the latest data along the way. As you know, there is SOOOOO much information out there in regards to health and wellness that it can be a bit confusing and difficult to sort out what to believe, what to potentially implement in your life, and what to flat out disregard and ignore. That’s where we come in.

The journey of health & wellness should be fun, rewarding, encouraging, and fulfilling.

I’m sure you’re asking, why should I listen to this guy and his team?!?! Yes, we have fancy titles, years of experience and worked successfully with individuals and teams of all levels. Yes, we have worked with everyone from the coach potato to the professional athletes. Yes, we have established and grown the 1stvalue-based health and wellness practice in RI (yes, all our clients choose to pay out of pocket for our services because we are simply that good), Yes, we have been a part of thousands of success stories, blah blah blah. In many people’s eyes this may help validate what we say moving forward, but truth is that there are a lot of people with fancy titles, years of experience, claiming to be the go-to source, best in the biz, etc. Many of these businesses:

  1. Truly do care, but what they are telling people is out of date, not based in the current clinical or research based evidence, and therefore simply are ineffective and/or inefficient.
  2. Are financially driven and not truly concerned about what is best for you.
  3. (And worst case) Both!!!!

My promise to you is that we’ll always deliver evidenced based, fun, exciting, easy to understand, and unbiased information that will provide a lot of value to you and your loved ones’ lives 😀. Along the way, we’ll share more about our backgrounds, education, experience, etc.

Let’s start today by acknowledging the 5 key areas of health and wellness: cardiovascular training, strength/endurance training, recovery work (“work” because it takes conscious effort), nutrition, and mental/emotional wellbeing. All 5 areas are equally important and we’ll dive into many topics within each of these categories (and more).

Health and wellness is a journey, not some specific destination though you may have goals along the way. It’s a journey that doesn’t have to be filled with complications, confusion, indecisiveness, insecurity, and self-doubt.

This blog is for you if you’re looking to live a healthier life, want to know the truth about what works and what doesn’t work, want to take less medication, avoid the doctor’s office, avoid unnecessary surgeries, and live a balanced, happy, and more mobile life. Thanks again for checking us out and remember to always LIVE LIFE WELL!!!

Dan, PT, DPT
