Back hurt and bottom rib clicks out of position. Painful. Cracked rib?

Hi, recently i hurt my back, I was on a bouncy castle and had a fall and bent my back, head backwards towards heels. This caused a lot of discomfort to my back, momentarily winding me and later i noticed when i bent my torso down to the right my bottom rib at the back clicks out of position and then i have to bend the opposite way to click it back as while it is out of position it is quite painful, is this a cracked rib?

Thanks for writing to us.
The bottom ribs out of position with pain are likely to be due to cracked ribs. However diagnosis can only be confirmed after an X-ray. Take rest and take a mild pain killer till then for relief. Doing a hot fomentation will also help.
