I don't see much compression of vertebrae. Need a little elaborate history in view of duration of symptoms , exaggeration factors, lifestyle problems etc. Clinical examination is paramount mainly to rule out any neurodeficeit, root tension signs, neurological claudication. If above factor exists than MRI LS Spine with WSS and proceed. Looking at the scoliosis it doesn't look to be an acute disease.

Unusually he has radiation Both LL.could be canal stenosis.Is there claudication.? Scoliosis must be secondary to sciatica . Manual therapy to Lumbar spine. Traction IFT posture correction and lumbar corset will help.

Lumbar scoliosis, treatment muscle relaxants, ultrasound, intermittent lumbar traction, stretching towards opposite side of scoliosis, go for mri to rule out any anamolies

Compression of body of L2,3,4 vertebrae. ? Traumatic, Koch's, secondary Secondary Scoliosis Needs MRI and biopsy from collapsed vertebral body.

The AP view xray shows a lot of gas shadowsalong with the lumbar spines. So spine is not clear!. Sciatic scoliosis is very prominent and lordosis is very much exaggerated. There are possibilities of ivdn and sp canal stenosis. Try to identify the trigger points and revert back to me.
