damaged back

I am a 61 year old with scoliosis lower back and joint problems. my consultant asked me to lay on my back bring both legs straight out hold them high then unsupported he asked me to slowly lower my legs until 12 inches off the ground and despite my cries of " my back my back " he insisted I hold that position until I had a back spasm and started to shake I believe this is called a double leg lift has anyone else been asked to do this movement, did it further damage your back.
I am shocked at the pain I am still in 1 year later but too afraid to see other specialists
