Chest ribs can fracture and muscles get bruised. They heal by themselves no special effort needed. But it takes 3 to 4 weeks minimum for pain to improve. The only care you can take is to avoid getting cold and cough. Steam inhalation only 2 to 3 times a day. Do not manipulate the fractures. Getting ice packs or hot packs whatever suits the skin of the person. Ideal try Ice first. If he is not tolerating it then hot water
