Broken Rib

Hi CyberDoc,
My boyfriend fractured his rib about 4 weeks ago and it was healing nicely. Now 3 days ago, he has gone and broken it. He is continues pain and I am not sure how to help releive the pain. Is it a good idea to wrap the rib cage or is there creams or pain meds that he can take to relieve the pain for now. I do know there is nothing much you can do to heal. But is there something I can do just to relieve the pain?
thank you
