Shoulder impingement/bursitis

Patient

Q: I'm attaching the MRI report of my right shoulder. The pain is mild, I would say it varies from 0 - 2 (on the scale of 1 to 10) and comes and goes at random times.

Based on the MRI, would you recommend
1. Injecting it with a steroid.
2. Do physical therapy to stabilize the shoulder.
3. Surgery.
4. Any combination of the above.

What specific PT exercises would you recommend if I chose to try to do nothing but PT.
