In brief: Ligamentous

Tightness is necessary.
There is no specific medication that can 'relax' ligaments which frankly need to be tight to support the joints. I presume you are referring to tendon tightness which is a function of inactivity, limited activity or prolonged immobilization. Activity geared toward stretching and improving flexibility are the only effective methods to combat tendon tightness. No shortcut.
