[endurance] ligament damage

In November of last year I rode in a particularly rocky 25 miler. At the
end of the race my horse pulled up lame, it turned out that he had a
problem with the interior check ligament. I've stayed off him since (went
through the ice treatment & absorbine) but there is still a small amount
of swelling and appears to be a little heat. Took him to the vets today and
the vet told me that this may
not heal, but advised me that I might start him off slowly and see how
he did. He said that we might consider a "blister job".
Has anyone had experience with interior check ligament damage or a blister
treatment or have any advice regarding this?
