This year is very crucial for him as he is in 12 th std but he is not able to sit so he is not attending any classes n school. He is done with Kerala Ayurveda treatment but no results. What was the reason for this cause and what can be done now? Please advice

Hello.... MRI is required to know the exact location and extent of compression... He should have consulted neurosurgeon long back... If it's mild disc bulge physiotherapy is sufficient. If he condition is bad surgery is the best option. He should not lift weight, no climbing steps... Take him to neurosurgeon or orthopedic doctor.
