spasming muscle, help!

Hi, my father had a total knee replacement, and after two years his shin/calf tendons/muscle spasm into stiff hard rocks. It hurts him and he has cirosis of the liver so he doesn't get relief from meds.
I'm looking for a leg messager that will help loosen the leg muscle, maybe one that is heated. My mom has a neck messager but it is not sized right for a swollen leg muscle. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Gravely Optimistic.

I posted my reply to your question at the Arthritis Community earlier.
Does your dad also suffer from Fibromyalgia? Just curious.

Cheers!
Niko

No he doesn't, but me and my mom do, and I know muscle pain and joint paint is a big issue for fibromyalgia suffers, so I thought somebody here might have an idea for a product to help him. My mom has a heated back massager to go in her office chair, but that won't work for his leg.

I  own a hand held massager with various settings  & infrared heat.
"HoMedics PA5H Percussion Massager", if you want to do a search.
I purchased mine from Costco a couple years ago.

Cheers
Niko
