Regenerative therapy: If the muscular biomechanics are improved and the pain persists, then medications might be considered. Injected or oral. Regenerative therapy might have a role here too. Placenta tissue, PRP or bone marrow concentrate are considerations for treatment.

Injection: Of steroids in subacromial bursa is reasonable at this point.
