I don't know what you can necessarily to do prevent some of these knots. You are doing the right things it seems. The only other thing you might consider is getting a back knobber. It's a big s-shaped piece of plastic that you can use to dig the knots out of your own back. You can also try contracting and relaxing the target muscle while you are putting pressure on the knot.
