Dancing With The Stars Kym Johnson For Life & Style Magazine October 2011

Kym Johnson is in the new issue of “Life & Style” Magazine. She dishes on her injury last season and remembers thinking how she’d never be able to dance again. She’s completely healed now and promises never to do anything stupid like that again. More below. Be sure to pick up the new issue of Life & Style Magazine to read the full interview as I’m sure she talks more about Dancing With The Stars.

“I remember thinking that this is the end–I may never be able to dance again,” Kym tells Life & Style in an exclusive interview. “I couldn’t feel my arms.”

Indeed, Kym learned if she had fallen at a slightly different angle, she could have been paralyzed.

Kym turned to her doctor, who forbade her from dancing and started her on an exhausting rehabilitation regimen including painful physical therapy, hyperbaric chamber sessions and ultrasound therapy.

Now, Kym is completely healed, and she’s back for the new season of DWTS, which premieres on Sept. 19 on ABC. Partnered with David Arquette, Kym tells Life & Style that she’ll be more cautious this time around: “Now, I’m aware of my health and will never do anything stupid like that again.”
