Brief Answer:
An MRI scan would be needed

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Pain in shoulder for such a long duration should not be neglected.

You may have to get an MRI scan to rule out major joint pathology or ligament injury. Treatment of such problems would include more then rest.

MRI scan would help to identify the condition and help to formulate the treatment necessary.
