That information i too less to actually identify the actual problem, the issue may be linked with some recent event like picking up heavy or throwing something even pulling. There is a need of thorough assessment before you get some advise and follow over it. In certain cases common activities like warming shoulder (hotpack / hot water bottle) may lead to increase in swelling and cause more of damage, whereas icing / applying coldpack may be beneficial and in some cases the opposite is true along with some mobilisations and manual therapeutic techniques.
Next Steps
Look for nearest rehabilitation center for a thorough assessment and follow what is advised.
