Back spasm

The stretchsitting and lying seem to aggravate my back spasm. My physical therapist suggested that I gently stretch it with the "angry cat" pose and a twist with knees bent. That made it worse! What do you advise for a spasm? I can barely move.

You need to stretchsit and stretchlie more gently - to the point where there is no spasm / discomfort / pain. You probably need to do whatever you do with the back very gently. Sometimes, especially when there has been trauma to an area, the muscles behave like frightened animals - you need to coax them to relax. Gentle skillful massage and acupuncture can be helpful in this siutation also.
