cracked ribs take about 6-8 weeks to heal. you dont have to wrap it but if you do dont wrap it to tight and you must take it off about once an hour so you can breathe properly.

Hey there,

The most common symptom of cracked rib which you hardly can't but notice is very sharp chest pain that gets worse when you move, try to bend or even when you breathe. If you think that you have cracked rib because of the recent injury, you really might want to see a doctor who will take an x ray to make sure that rib hasn't injured any of the internal organs.

But, there isn't much else that you can do except rest to minimize the pain and speed up the recovery and maybe take some pain killers to ease the pain because rib will heal on its own for about six to eight weeks. Still, better to make sure that the rib is cracked and that there is no potential damage to the lungs.
