I think Jtrue already mentioned something similar, currently drinking electrolytes drink is the only thing that reduce my muscle tightness. My ITB, Quad, hip muscles feels a release soon after I drink the electrolytes. I feel the scar restrictions in my left ITB area are untangled. It is very hard to describe the nerve/muscle sensation. But I feel very loose after I drink it.
But it is only momentary. The next day, I will feel the tightness comeback again and the scar tissue restriction is back also. The electrolytes is like “muscle relaxer” pill. But it is quite effective in treating the symptom.
