Hello Sandra,
If you didn't have immediate severe pain, then it's unlikely you have cracked a rib.

Does it hurt in front, near the breastbone, at the spine, or under the armpit/breast area?

You have probably injured one of the joints that attach the rib to the sternum and spine.

But a careful examination is always important after a fall, because it's not impossible that you have a cracked rib or spine. More details at rib pain treatment ...

Find a good chiropractor may be your next step.
