Chick with slipped tendon 3 weeks old

Hi everyone. After researching I finally figured out my chick has a slipped tendon. She is a bantam chick and is 3 weeks old now. I initially thought it was splayed leg so I taped her legs up but now know it is slipped tendon. I can feel the tendon on the inside of her hock instead of the back.. I’ve tried gently a few times just to see if it would go back in but I don’t want to hurt her or break something. I have heard if it is out of place for too long then the groove won’t be there anymore for the tendon. I’m wondering if the slipped tendon can still be fixed if it has been out of place for a few weeks? Any help is appreciated.
