Chronic muscle spasm, pain in the latissimus dorsi and oblique, recurrent sore muscle knots on rib cage. What treatment should be taken?

I have had debilitating chronic muscle spasm and pain in the left latissimus dorsi and oblique for about 4 years. The last 4 weeks I have had sore muscle knots on my left rib cage(intercostal muscles?)(this seems to happen every 4-5 months).The Orthopaedic doctors I have seen are not sure if I need shoulder surgery(MRIs do not indicate any advaced pathology ).
