Objective: to observe and analyze the clinical effect of alendronate combined with functional exercise on degenerative Osteoarthrifis(OA), so as to provide an effective scheme for its clinical treatment. Methods: A total of 60 cases of degenerative OA patients in our hospital were selected as the research object, and they were randomly divided into the group A and the group B, with 30 cases in each group. Patients in the group A were orally administrated with alendronate, while those in the group B were given functional exercise therapy in combination with alendronate as the group A. Results: After treatment, VAS score of group B was obviously superior to that of group A, and the differences were statistically meaningful (t=2.41, P < 0.05). After intervention, the levels of serum P1NP and CTX in the two groups were meaningfully lower than those before intervention (P < 0.05), and the levels of BGP and 25(OH)D were meaningfully higher than those before intervention (P < 0.05). After the treatment within the same period of time, the effective rate of patients in the group B in comprehensive treatment was 93.8%, meaningfully higher than 79.7% in the group A (P < 0.05). Conclusion: For degenerative OA, alendronate combined with functional exercise has a more meaningful effect, which can further improve the stiffness of the affected parts of the limbs, reduce the degree of pain, and improve the quality of life of patients.
