IPRS Group

The IPRS Group was established in 1995 and celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2015.

The founder wanted to promote 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 is similar 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 in Ipswich.

In 2004 the IPRS Group 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 clinical services to the Healthcare industry.

Today the IPRS Group is made up of 5 divisions, all working diversely within the Healthcare sector.
