'Dancing with the Stars' Season 18, week 7: Amy Purdy's injury from a dislocated rib
It turns out that the cause was a dislocated rib causing the spasms.
Purdy herself updated the world on her condition on Tuesday (April 29) morning via Twitter:
So, Looks like I have a rib out of place and my muscles are in spasm.I am being very proactive in healing up so I can continue this journey.-- Amy Purdy (@AmyPurdyGurl) April 29, 2014
From this message, it seems that -- despite the pain -- the Paralympics athlete looks ready to keep going with the "DWTS" competition.
This dislocated rib is the second such problem experienced by a "Dancing with the Stars" celebrity this week -- Danica McKellar broke a rib during rehearsals for her Latin week performance.
"Dancing with the Stars" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
