In brief: Many treatments
Rotator cuff tendinitis and impingement can be treated with therapy and antiinflammatories.
If that fails a steroid injection can help. If nothing works a shoulder arthroscopy may be needed.

In brief: Several guidelines.
Have you checked with an orthopedic sports medicine specialist? You may require oral medications, a cortisone injection and physical therapy.
Surgery is a last resort for these types of problems.

In brief: Physical therapy
Pt is the best place to start for rotator cuff impingement.
The bruising is unusual and should consider an MRI if not improving.
