Might I suggest you research comfrey poultices for Dream. I can't be of too much help on the frequency though. Maybe something like a poultice every day for the first week or two then maybe every other day? I think consistency would be what I would be trying to achieve with maybe a few days here and there of no poulticing for maybe a month or so.?.
And mixing it with dmso here and there could help speed it up by carrying it into the ligaments a bit better. But again I don't know too much on that so you would need to research it.
