Back injury

I have a quarter horse that I trail ride. I recently tried out a new pad that distributed more weight to the rear of the saddle. That first time left a knot on his spine because of the lacing on the underside of the saddle. It was about the size of a quarter and sore to the touch. He was not ridden for 4 weeks, swelling and tenderness went away. I rode with two pads (not the first pad at all) but again the knot appeared and was again sore. What do I do for this and is this something that is going to be permanent?

I would have someone come take a look at the saddle and make sure it is fitting properly. An ill fitting saddle can cause issues regardless of the pad underneath it and although it may have fit well at one point in time horses often gain/lose weight or muscle causing saddles to suddenly fit differently than before. Once you rule out saddle fit you can look into different causes.
