Intercostal, from Costal meaning 'of the ribs'. Inter coastal ribs are somewhere in Kansas.

hey bro I got kicked in the ribs twice in the same spot and got an intercostal muscle strain, took a few weeks to heal but heal it did, but you gotta let things heal, my physio put it well when he said "you've got your whole life to train martial arts what's a few weeks of taking it easy?"

Find a chiro or Chinese med who does needles and stuff and go for it.

Wow, i'm in the same situation right now (or at least similar). I was sparring with a capo kid and took a back kick to the leg (he's shorter than me). Anyways, i've been using some tiger balm and its helping me alot, try it along with the other stuff you're doing/gonna do. :P
