MRI results, intrasubstance injury in supraspinatus with tendonitis in subscapularis and supraspinatus & bursitis in sub deltoid. Over 4 months of pain, I completed 6 weeks of PT with little to no improvement, what are my options for treatment now?

In brief: Injection

Of steroids in subacromial bursa is reasonable at this point.

In brief: Regenerative therapy

If the muscular biomechanics are improved and the pain persists, then medications might be considered.
Injected or oral. Regenerative therapy might have a role here too. Placenta tissue, PRP or bone marrow concentrate are considerations for treatment.
