The DFMCH is grateful to the Hackett Hemwall Patterson Foundation, an international leader in the practice and teaching of clinical prolotherapy, and to Frederick Kessler for their recent donations to the University of Wisconsin Prolotherapy Research and Education Laboratory (UW PEARL).

Directed by David Rabago, MD, a National Institutes of Health-trained clinician-scientist, UW PEARL is an interdisciplinary collaboration of clinicians evaluating prolotherapy for the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain. Through education and research efforts, UW PEARL hopes to increase understanding of the appropriate use of prolotherapy.
