Reading my MRI shoulder help.. I fell

4 months ago I fell of my bike at high speed, yes I was very lucky I simply got up and I was totally fine but the only thing that was hurting was my shoulder. It was not hurting because I fell on it but because (I still remember) as I was falling I threw it back and I had this immediate pain. It went behind and over my head fast right before I fell. Few days later I knew I damaged something in their as I am experienced with shoulder injuries (hurt my left one while rock climbing and got surgery on it)

I followed the RICE steps for my right one pain did calm down but evey time I reach over to the left it clicks and it starts to hurt bad. The doctor orders an MRI and this is what was on the report

1- There is no SLAP tear
2- Thickining of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus and subsapularis tendons maybe the consequence of strain or trauma
3- A laterally Downsloping acromino mildly narrows the supraspinatus outlet
4- Thicking and redundancy of the middle glenohumeral ligament from its orgini superiorly down to its merger with the anterior joint capsule beneath the subscapularis from sprain.
5-there maybe mild injury to the glenoid orgin of the posterior band of the inferior glenohumeral ligament and to the capsule it self resulting in some irregularity of the contours of both structures above

Now my doctor ordered PT and I been doing it for almost 3 weeks. My question is can this heal on its own? Or this damage is beyond repair and surgery is necessary. I am also thinking about PRP

Thank you all for your help
