Really the only way to see if a rib is broken is to get an x-ray. If the x-ray comes back good then the Dr. may either give you pain killers to take while it heals or they may send you for an MRI to see what is going on with the muscle. If I were you it wouldn't hurt to make an appt to be seen for an x-ray just so you know what is going on. If it is a strained muscle or broken rib, lots of rest will help it heal properly & you are less likely to have complications in the future. Hope this helps

The only true way to find out is X-ray, often though if a rib is just cracked there isn't much different treatment then for a strained muscle.
