Crumbling spine, broken back. What s the cure?

Hello there, my father has a crumbling spine following an un diagnosed broken back when he was much younger, he is currently taking Co-Dydramol and Tramadol but do not know in what quanties, he used to have injections into the spinal to kill the nerve ends but not now as the pain was to severe he can only just about walk now but has to stop every few steps because of the pain, are there any stronger pain killers that he can take.

Thank you
