HelloGreat questionWelcome to JAThis is not very severe but needs the correct physical therapy.It does not need surgery.You need to see a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist to assess your structure, then design a tailored physical therapy and home exercise program, any splinting that is needed, etc.This will save time, money and avoid problems in the future such as s surgery.Sports medicine is OK as well.So so far you are doing things correct.
Let me know if you have further questions.
