Torn Ligament

I had an MRI done on my ankle a few weeks back and informed that I have a torn ligament that has "atrophied and shrunk back" in the words of my doctor. It's an old injury that's been acting up, so he told me that I can continue to do as I've been doing but the only way to fix it is surgery. Is this true? Would physical therapy be effective on an atrophied ligament injury?

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