Need help to reduce constant pain in the shoulder and back since last 2 years

It started with shoulder pain, but has now spread to back and hamstrings. I have tried doing Physiotherapy for more than a year now under the guidance of multiple doctors, but none of them have proved successful. Post this, I did a MRI and doctor suggested some steroids that could be beneficial. I tried those for 3 months, but the pain continued. I am looking for some permanent treatment that could reduce the pain ! Please let me know if anyone can help.

How did your initial injury happen? Was it your shoulder that was injured or your spine? Or both?
What was the MRI examining? What areas of the body?
As far as physical therapy, depending on the injury, it can and often does make things worse for awhile before you see any benefit, but if you have been going for a year, and things are worsening, it would be  a good idea to see your doctor again and get reevaluated.
