'DWTS' Pro Kym Johnson Suffers Neck Injury

The dancer had a scary fall while practicing with partner Hines on Friday -- but she was back on the dance floor by Sunday

Dancing with the Stars pro Kym Johnson took a tumble while practicing Monday night's routine with partner Hines Ward. She suffered a neck injury and was rushed to the hospital on Friday.

Though she's definitely feeling some pain, the show released a statement saying that Johnson will be well enough to continue on in the competition.

"After several tests, she was cleared by the medical staff, though she is bruised, sore and currently wearing a neck brace," a rep for DWTS said. "Kym plans to continue with Hines Ward in the competition and resume rehearsals as soon as possible."

And it seems Johnson had a very speedy recovery! On Sunday, she was spotted returning to the dance studio, wearing the neck brace (pictured here). She and Hines will be competing against the other three couples that currently make up the final four.

"Thank you everyone for your concern, love and support," the dancer wrote on her Facebook page. "I'm a little shaken up, sore but I will be fine. I want to give a special thanks to everyone at Cedars-Sinai. The doctors, nurses and staff were so amazing." 

Dancing with the Stars never seems to come and go without mishaps. Just last week Ralph Macchio powered through his routine while fighting a bum knee. Hopefully Johnson's neck injury will be the last of the season.
