Good to hear you your improvements.
The knots come back because the reason you are getting the knots isn’t being addressed.
The ART will help the symptom, but not resolve the cause.
Until the cause is identified/addressed you will continue to have the knots show up.
I would recommend using one of the Yoga Tune Up Therapy Plus balls

The lacrosse ball may be too hard. I’ve had people switch to using a therapy plus ball and it has really helped get in some areas better.
Some could also be technique/positioning when performing the skill.
Could originate at your elbow.
Have you looked at the front rack episodes?

Yes improving your standing position will help the situation.
Yes, it can take time to break a habit and rebuild a new movement pattern and have that become a habit.
There is not set time on how long this can take. It can vary for several reasons.
Yes addressing your chest/pecs can help.

You still want to address these things so you are building a strong foundation that does not have any restriction on movement. Taking the time to do this now and correct any technique deviations will prove very beneficial.
