He can also sit with his legs in front of him in a V and lean forward gently. I agree that he needs to add potassium. Probably by replacing processed foods with fresh foods he will be able to get enough potassium, which may make a big difference. Fresh foods, in general, have potassium, but here is a list of foods high in potassium.

1) Sit with your knees bent and the soles of your feet together
2) DO NOT bend forward... that shifts your pelvis and really stretches your back...
.....Gently press the tops of the knees down toward the floor with your elbows.
3) Stop when a slight stretch is felt. If you are not getting enough of a stretch pull your heels in toward your pelvis.
4) Hold for 15-20 seconds and repeat 3-5 times.
Make sure he's getting enough potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium and iron.
Make sure he's well hydrated with WATER
You can also try ice... it will interrupt the muscle spasm where heat will NOT.
