In brief: PT

Was probably just muscle pain.
I would recommend you get into a formal course of physical therapy along with anti-inflammatory medications. This should do the trick.

In brief: Couple possibilities

This description is insufficient for good help, so here's a couple possibilities: rib dysfunction, muscle strain, vertebral dysf.
A good history with detail about exact location, type of pain (sharp vs dull vs burning, etc), duration of pain would help diagnosis.A good history is key as is a good physical incl osteopathic hands-on exam.If cause is found, osteopathic manipulation may help.
