Brief Answer:
Simple precautions advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Firstly it is very common at this age and more so in people with sedentary lifestyle and are obese.
So in case he is overweight then main punch point is weight reduction which is a long term process as we know.
So for the time being -
- ask him to have a regular walk daily at least for 20 mins, he can sit in between and then walk again in initial few months
- give him a lot of milk and green leafy vegetables
- get his bone mineral density check from a good orthopedic clinic so that we can plan further management
For the time being he can take pain killers off and on but take care to have them with meals and never empty stomach.
All the best.
Regards
Dr Manisha
