Hello, Please provide more details of symptoms. If he is sitting and working for longer hours, it can be postural pain. Ask him to sit on an economical chair with proper back support. Dr Dimple Kapasi, USA licensed Kandivali West, Mumbai

first reference should be given to cardio physician and rule out if pain is physiological origin. if clearance is given than physiotherapist consultation would help.
