Severe back pain

My friend is suffering from severe back pain for last 3 months. He even was on bed rest for 20 days because of it. He has been suggested some exercises by physiotherapist and he is doing the same regularly. Hot water bag gives temporary relief. What should be done as a long term solution. Kindly suggest.
