Hello
If it is not a full tear then physical therapy will help it heal.
If you can get him a homeopathic remedy called Rhus Tox 200C potency, take one pill under the tongue once a day for three days,,,then that is it....this might help.

The tear needs to be appraised by a doc and PT ordered.

good luck
