Severe shoulder swelling and pain, feeling of ball inside. How can I fix this?

Hi, my shoulder swells and hurts to the point I cannot move it. I attended physical therapy and she said I need to excersize it daily and it will take long but eventually will go away. Until she began pressing pressure points and saying she could not get to them. I put ice packs, heat packs, get massaged and nothing stops it from hurting various times a day. It feels like a ball is inside.
