Clinical Value of Homeopathic Prophylaxis of Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections in Persons With Spinal Cord Injury
Clinical Value of Homeopathic Assessment and Treatment for Prophylaxis of Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections in Persons With Spinal Cord Injury

recurrent symptomatic urinary tracts infections (UTI) in persons with spinal cord injury are a frequent problem, leading to significant morbidity and to a decreased quality of life.

  • until today, there is no effective prophylaxis for UTI for patients with spinal cord injury.
  • homeopathy has been shown to be an effective treatment option in several chronic diseases
  • study hypothesis: the addition of homeopathic assessment and treatment to a standard prevention strategy for recurrent UTI will significantly reduce the number of symptomatic UTI per year in this group of patients compared to standard prevention alone
