In brief: Muscle stretching.

Most cramps (charlie hoarses or spasms) are best managed with gradual over- stretching of the cramped up muscle.
At some point it will just "give" and spasm will resolve right away. The muscle will stay irritated and can easily go back into spasm within a few minutes after resolution.
