The Elks Organization has been working with physically challenged children since
1928 and this is one of the 17 clinic locations throughout Illinois. The clinic
is an ideal time to have a child reviewed for bone and joint development. If
your child has feet pointing out or in who complains of back, knew, leg, ankle
pain or has a back curvature can be seen at this clinic. There is no charge for
any diagnostic services at this clinic. The Elks will provide financial
assistance to the best of their ability for children needing further treatment
or specialty equipment when the family lacks sufficient resources to do so. In
the past, the Elks have purchased therapy service, corrective shoes, braces,
wheelchairs and augmentative communication devices to help children overcome a
variety of physical challenges.
