Hi...your mri file i cannot access since its not there...but what looks like is your son is suffering from sciatica...get him neurobion(vit B) injections 5 in total every alternate day...and sometimes without any surgical intervention the problem shall come down in intensity...but for long term treatment surgery might be needed depending on the location of nerve entrapment.

General & Family Physician Dr. Shainaz Arif Kaware's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Since three doctors have diagnosed a herniated disc I shall agree with the doctors.As for the chiropractor saying pinched nerve let me tell you that a pinched nerve more likely happens when a person has herniated disc on any of the side.So in either terms your sons problem and even the treatment remains the same.
I would suggest you to consult a Orthopaedician for opinion and treatment as I am unable to see the MRI report so difficult to give an opinion.
Take care.
