Video: Karina Smirnoff Injures Neck & Jaw During "Dancing" Rehearsals

"Dancing with the Stars" pro Karina Smirnoff was dancing with an injury Monday night.

During last night's episode, the dancer was seen rushing to the hospital after a backflip went awry during rehearsals with partner Jacoby Jones.

After being treated for neck, chin and jaw injuries at Cedars-Sinai on Sunday, Karina tweeted that she was "still a bit sore" but would still be performing -- adding "not dancing isn't an option."

And the injury didn't stop the couple from bringing their A game last night, as they scored a 59/60 and tied Mark Ballas and Aly Raisman for the top spot on the leaderboard.
