How to release pain behind shoulder blade?

Feels like a knot trapped behind my scapula.. No matter what I do I just can't release it. Painful when I squeeze my blades. Anyone any ideas?

    One trick that many physical therapist use.

    Lay on the floor, put a tennis ball under the shoulder blade that feels trap.  Roll around a bit as if massaging the area.

    Warning:  This is based on recommendations from physical therapists who have seen their patients and fully understand the situation. I have used this many times myself with success.   I do not want to state  that this will work for you or it will not potential cause any problem.  You should always check with your doctor before trying an exercise or gadget for pain relief.   This is not a recommendation or approved exercise from Veritas-Health
