Rib out of place?

I think I have a rib out of place.  For about a month now, I feel pain when I take a deep breath.  I feel a sharp pain where my heart is (left side of my chest).  A month later, it's no better and is actually worse.  My heart feels bruised.  I did several push-ups a few days ago and now it is really aggrivated.  I thought I could just wait it out, but now I'm wondering if that's such a good idea.  
This has a happened to me several times in the past.  I'm a massage therapist and several years back I caused a rib to go out while I was massaging a client.  Now I guess it goes out more easily.
What can I do and how can I prevent this from happening again.?

This reminds of a problem I developed in chiropractic school. What worked for me was receiving a specific form of chiropractic known as Upper Cervical Care. It took pressure off the joints within my spine and allowed them to stabilize. Haven't had a rib out since. A good website for a referral is www.UpCspine.com
