Is Prolotherapy an “off-label” use of Procaine™ and Glucose?

Dr. Clark uses the components of the proliferative solution in an “off-label” fashion, extended beyond the usual and customary recommendations of the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).

The efficacy of Prolotherapy is considered by the FDA, Medicare, and various insurance companies to have NOT been adequately demonstrated in the medical literature and, therefore is considered by those organizations as “investigative” in nature. On the other hand, several reports in the medical literature have shown scientifically-proven efficacy of Prolotherapy – resulting in insurance coverage in certain locales. Prolotherapy is taught and used at all major Osteopathic Medical Schools and is being used and taught at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, an allopathic, MD training program.
