Strained ligament

My horse was just diagnosed with a strained check ligament, left
foreleg.  There is a mild thickening in the area, no heat,  and he is
sore if the area is palpated. He is ever so slightly off at a trot, in
hand, on pavement.  Treatment:  30 days stall rest with hand walking
(can also be walked under saddle), along with 10 days of a topical
counter-irritant. (Reducine applied 1x per day.)  Any comments from
anyone who has successfully treated this type injury would be most
appreciated. His X-rays are absolutely clean and the initial treating
vet missed this injury 4 months ago.
