tendon tear

The mri showed that I have a partial posterior tibial tendon tear. I have been wearing a boot and resting it to see if it heals. What is your treatment plan for this? I am also wondering if I should get a second opinion with an orthopedic physician. My podiatrist is talking about surgery and I would like to avoid that if I can. Is it possible that the tendon can heal without surgery?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
