Welcome to Healthcare Magic,
No , there no any sever issue neither critical. At this stage he must avoid any lifting, twisting his trunk, bending . He must carry lumbar belt ,continue prescribed treatment, regularly visit his Doctor. Under correct therapy there will be rapid recovery .
I wish your father good luck and speedy recovery,
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries don’t hesitate to ask.
