In brief: Talk to hand surgeon

There is no medical treatment for a tear unless it heals spontaneously.
Obviously avoiding further stress on the area with a splint to allow the tendon to heal (only it is a partial tear). The best approach would be to consult a hand surgeon before further damage occurs.
