Most state boards of medicine have definition for what is experimental and what is not. Those definitions are based on two major issues. If a procedure as taught by post graduate programs for the healing arts and has level II (out of IV) data in multiple areas, it is not considered experimental.

II-1 Controlled trials without randomization.
Controlled treatment comparison studies.
II-2 Cohort (delayed Rx) studies from more
than one center.
II-3 Uncontrolled trial with dramatic result.
Uncontrolled trial with blindable objective
Level III. Substantially flawed RCTs or other controlled studies. Single well designed cohort or case control study.
(Level I evidence and minimal risk)
(Level 2 evidence and minimal risk)
Conclusion: Prolotherapy has more evidence than most treatments doctors use and it should be mentioned as an option.
