Your mother’s shoulder pain likely needs to be further investigated with an MRI as well as by an orthopedic surgeon. They could tell you the options at that point but there are other options besides surgery. One is platelet rich plasma (PRP) and another is stem cell therapy. Both are injections and when combined with continued physiotherapy the out omes can be quite favorable. I would make an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon or sports medicine doctor to discuss her options. I hope this helps. Take care,
