In brief: Cuff strengthening

Lacrosse is an overhead sport.
As a result, the rotator cuff is critical for play. A strengthening plan for the rotator cuff and periscapular muscles would be critical for best performance. Visiting with an athletic trainer or physical therapist would be best.

In brief: See doc

A thorough evaluatioin by a sports medicine specialist is a good start.
If you have not sustained a direct injury it is likely that surgical intervention is not necesssry and a combination of physical therapy focused on restrengthening your rotator cuff and an anti-inflammatory medication can be helpful. May require some modifications in activity but a sports doc will help guide you.
