The ribs attach to the sternum. Where they attach, these are considered "joints", but they aren't supposed to move much, so they are probably just sore. Sometimes the sternum can actually be broken, although unlikely. Chest injuries take a long time to heal, since breathing constantly irritates them. You need to roll with the punches more, rather than taking them straight on in the chest....
