Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Yes it is better to get medical attention at the earliest possible. That could be because of disc herniation etc.

Ask him to lay down on a firm surface. Give him a over the counter analgesic that is available to you. Call for help to take him to the doctor.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
