IPRS Group was established in 1995 to provide physiotherapy to employees of local organisations in Ipswich and Suffolk. The founder, a former professional football club physiotherapist, wanted to adopt the ethos of “sports injury management” into commercial organisations by comparing staff absence in the workplace with injured football players where return to “game-ready” fitness shares similar traits to “return to work” fitness.
This ethos and innovative approach to corporate physiotherapy led to growth within the company resulting in a 2002 move to a larger head office premises on the outskirts of Ipswich. In 2004, IPRS broadened its client base into the Corporate and Government sectors and has continued to develop and grow with a varied customer base comprising of largely blue chip clients, focussing on the provision of high quality musculoskeletal physiotherapy. Two years later, IPRS launched the a range of mental health services.
In 2014 IPRS went through a rebrand, which included dividing the Group into 4 divisions, each delivering specialist healthcare services and sales, while developing 4 distinct brands and businesses; IPRS Health, IPRS Aeromed, IPRS Mediquipe & PFAS.
