About our Medical Clinic

In 2001 we started Ingersoll Downtown Physiotherapy.  Over the years we have grown to include Chiropractic Care, Pedorthic Services (Orthotics), Physiotherapy and Massage Therapy. Our goal is to continue adding Healthcare Professionals to our team to better serve the residents of Ingersoll.

Thank you for making us part of this wonderful town. 

Providing you with the best Practitioners for the best care

Helien Watson, Physiotherapist

Growing up in rural Southwestern Ontario gave me an appreciation for small town life. Although I have lived in large cities, I am happy to call Oxford County “home”. I spent four years in Kingston at Queen’s University to achieve my Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy. I then worked in Toronto and Belleville/Trenton before moving to this area. I have a well rounded background in Physiotherapy because in my early years I rotated through the various specialties in the Hospital, and I also did Community Home Care Physio for a number of years. I have continued my education with post graduate courses to upgrade my knowledge base and hands on skills. I care about my patients and it is my goal to improve function and quality of life. We take our work seriously at Ingersoll Downtown Physio but we try to ensure your experience is enjoyable as well as effective.

Sean Deroo, Pedorthist (for all your Orthotic Needs)

Sean grew up in Tillsonburg, Ontario and enjoys watching and participating in a variety of

different sports such as soccer, golf and tennis.  He completed his Bachelor's of Kinesiology with Honors at Brock University in 2018.  During his undergrad, a friend's grandfather mentioned podiatry.  Sean pursued this option with the Diploma Program in Pedorthics at Western University.  He completed the program in 2019 with Honors before becoming a Certified Canadian Pedorthist in 2021.  Sean enjoys the "dual" aspect of understanding what ailments his patient's are dealing with in a clinical setting and using that assessment to determine the best option for orthotic design in a laboratory setting.
