In brief: Yes

Physical therapy and time generally can do wonders for most rotator cuff problems.
However , if you are not making any progress you need to see an orthopedic surgeon to help better define and treat your shoulder problem.

In brief: Definitely

This is a complex joint disorder with many muscles, ligaments, tendons, connective tissue elements and motion involved.
Pt may not cure the problem but may restore function, relieve pain and prevent deterioration and be all that one would need short of any surgical repair. Discuss carefully with your shoulder specialist.
