David Purves, PA-C, ATC of the Springfield Clinic Orthopedic Group
will conduct the assessments. The clinic is by appointment only. The
clinic is an ideal time to have a child reviewed for bone and joint
development. If your child has an uncorrectable deformity, complains
of back, knee, leg, ankle pain or has a back curvature, they can be
seen at the clinic. No medical referral is necessary for the clinic,
however, physicians are welcome to refer patients to the clinic for
a specific reason or second opinion.
The Elks Organization has been working with physically challenged
children since 1928. There are 17 clinic locations throughout
Illinois. 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 services, corrective
shoes, braces, orthotics, wheelchairs and augmentative communication
devices to help children overcome a variety of physical challenges.
