Hi and welcome to the back and neck suppor forum.

Since this is  an ongoing issue I would ask if u could get the neck MRI'd again.....

It will depend on the results of your cervical spine MRI what type of treatment would be effective to relieve your symptoms.  I believe the physical therapist is correct in thinking that your neck vertebrae are the pain generators.  
Please post the results of your MRI and we might be able to assist you better.
While it is possible to have a concurrent shoulder injury/bursitis, the shoulder pain could have also been related to your neck problems.  I hope that you are under the care of an orthopedic spine specialist, and if possible, a referral to a reputable surgeon.
Best wishes ----
