rotator cuff and no insurance


Hello,thanks for reading.
I play a lot of volleyball and my rotator cuff has given me quite lot of pain in the last year or so.
I can’t sleep on my shoulder, hitting the ball hurts, etc.
I had an x-ray done, but they found nothing wrong.
I played volleyball about two weeks ago (abnormal for it to be so long ago), but my shoulder has started hurting for no reason now. And it hurts pretty bad–im taking max ibuprofen to quell the pain which gets rid of about 80% of it. i am currently without insurance, so I can’t see a doctor for about a 2 months.
I don’t want to hurt myself further, so my question is, can I do physical therapy at home, or should I tough out the next few months?thanks for any response anyone has!Thanks,Ben
