In brief: Different

There are different approaches.
It will actually depend on what shoulder structure(s) is/are involved. If it is rotator cuff (by far, most frequently involved), exercises, physical therapy and also a steroid injection may be helpful to relieve the pain and restore the function. Also, avoidance of movements/motions known to cause/aggravate the pain is advisable.
