Dwight Hartman, Hingham Physical Therapist

About Dwight Hartman, P.T.

Hello! My name is Dwight Hartman and I opened Hartman Physical Therapy in October 2017 with the primary goal of providing the highest quality of care possible. In doing so, I wanted to change how physical therapy is typically delivered. After 22 years of working in and managing “traditional” PT practices, I desired a more patient-focused approach and opened HPT to differentiate myself from other PT practices in the area.

Here’s what makes HPT different:

  • Every session is 60 minutes of 1-on-1 care. I will never double or triple book patients. Your physical therapist should not be multi-tasking during your time.
  • You will never work with an assistant or unlicensed aide at HPT. The entire session is spent with me and that continuity of care makes a big difference in outcomes.
  • I encourage communication with me outside of your appointment and will make myself accessible to answer questions or concerns at any time.
  • My work is grounded in science and evidenced-based research and I constantly seek new techniques and technologies to improve patient outcomes. If you are looking for the best care possible, let me help you return to sport, recreation and life. Get the care you deserve!


I grew up in Dover, NH where I was a 3-sport athlete in Football, Basketball and Baseball. I attended Dartmouth College and was a member of the Varsity Football Team that won the 1990 Ivy League Championship. I graduated from Dartmouth in 1991 with a BA in Psychology. After Dartmouth, I took my passion for health and sports to Boston University where I graduated with a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy in 1995. Since then, I have worked in and managed a variety of Outpatient Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy Clinics in CT and MA before opening HPT in 2017. I am a Hingham resident where I live with my wife Cathy and dog Riley. Our sons Cole and Connor attend Union College and Bates College respectively where they both play lacrosse. As a family we prioritize health, wellness and fitness and have focused our travels on outdoor adventures.
