It is true, some vets rarely take care of goats and do not understand the needs of a goat because they are not like dogs, cats, or horses.
My vets did not until I forced them to learn.
Unfortunately you can't just "un-stiff" the front legs. Typically it is a sign of something greater going on that you probably will not be able to help or fix.
I'm going to PM you some info on goats and hopefully you will be able to find something in them that could help you understand what is happening to your goat's non-injured legs. Maybe your vet can help too if he/she has a better idea of what is causing it.
You think what is happening in the front legs is not a big deal, but is it.
I'm just trying to help, there will be no insults in the PM.
