If you're having trouble with muscle spasams, you might see if you can find a PT with experience in myofascial release. (It's... a very focused deep tissue massage that helps stretch out the muscle tissues... Or something along those lines.) It has been very helpful in controlling my spasams.
I'm also treated with ultrasound and heat.. Nothing in the way of stretches, and only a few easy strengthening exercises...
Also, I had good results with 10 mg of Flexeril a day.
