When the muscle is cramping get is in a stretched position ASAP... once the pain releases you can then massage the area to break up the knot.
Since your muscles work on a sodium-potassium pump system that uses calcium to facilitate the process you need to make sure he is getting enough of all 3 minerals... not just potassium!! Magnesium can also help I have been told, but I can't tell you scientifically why. GL - it stinks when your kids are hurting!!
