Hi Natasha, first you need to go to an urgent care center to evaluate whether your cracked rib injured internal organs, or whether the cracked rib is threatening to your life. If answers to both questions are no, mostly doctors will let you just go back home and have a good rest. Apply a bandage if necessary to stabilize the ribs.
