HI Well come to HCM I really appreciate your concern for your father if this is degenerative disease of the spine then such pain would be very likely some time this could be surgical condition and this need to be treated accordingly, if the NSAID is not giving much relief so opioid can be tried but prior to initiate this patine need to be qualified for this, looking to age of your father there could be some functional elements that might be responsible for chronic pain, take care, have a nice day.
