Progressive Rehabilitation Associates had its origin in the early 1980’s. At that time Vince Eldridge and Drew Bossen, both PTs with roots in Iowa, were living and working in Cincinnati, Ohio. They envisioned a physical therapy practice in Iowa City which would serve the orthopedic needs of the area. This vision became reality in 1989 when Bossen and Eldridge opened Progressive Physical Therapy and Sports Clinic of Iowa. The initial clinic was modest, yet from the beginning it was clear that Service, Access and Outcomes were the key to success in serving patients. As the Progressive name and services became more familiar in the area the original clinic was outgrown. A clinic in Tipton, Iowa was opened in the fall of 1991.
