Amy Purdy says she has a “rib out of a place,” a diagnosis she received after being rushed to the hospital during Monday’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

As Gossip Cop reported, the paralympian left the live show after her rumba with Derek Hough, forcing the cancellation of their team dance.

On Tuesday, Purdy updated fans on her condition.

“So, Looks like I have a rib out of place and my muscles are in spasm,” wrote the contestant.

She went on, “I am being very proactive in healing up so I can continue this journey.”

“Please keep the positive healing thoughts and votes coming!!!” added Purdy, with the hashtags “#purdyhough #dontstopwontstop.”

The athlete later shared a photo from a laser treatment to help the spasms — see below!

Purdy’s fellow contestant, Danica McKellar, competed on Monday despite suffering a broken rib last week.

Gossip Cop wishes both stars a speedy recovery!
