In brief: Therapy, injections

Shoulder bursitis generally responds well to conservative care including nsaids, physical therapy, icing, a home shoulder exercise program and occasionally injections.
People who fail to improve with 4-6 months of conservative care may require surgical treatment which is generally done arthroscopically.
