What happens over time is, the pads wear a deep grove in it. That grove prevents them from backing-off and moving like they should. Only resolution is to replace the brake caliper carrier. While there might be some way to improvise, you generally don't mess around when it comes to brakes. The rear brake was not designed to STOP the bike... only slow the bike. So if it's being over utilized, this will cause the aforementioned damage.

They call it "bracket support" in this diagram [#10] and, good luck finding one.
