Jordan Fisher’s ‘Adrenaline Is A Big Factor’ On Dancing With The Stars

Jordan Fisher weighs in on his all of injuries while powering through on Dancing With The Stars. He tells People how adrenaline is helping him through. More below and at the link.

But while Fisher and dancing partner Lindsay Arnold should be celebrating after their major victory on Monday night, the 23-year-old Hamilton star is busy resting. Fisher suffered injuries while practicing gymnastics as a child, and his body is still recovering.

“I don’t have great hips for somebody who’s 23,” Fisher — who’s teaming up with Nintendo — tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I think adrenaline is a big factor. It definitely can mask a lot of things that I deal with, but the moment I get into my car and head home, that’s when my body goes ‘Oh God.’”

In addition to his weak hips, the actor says he suffers from tendinitis in both achilles, thin cartilage in his ankles and rotator cuff issues in his right shoulder.

“I’m definitely sore all the time,” says Fisher, who receives frequent care from a massage therapist. But the singer says exercise — like dancing — actually helps him prevent “real damage” in the future.

“It’s a matter of keeping it strengthened as much as I possibly can and continuing to just push through it,” says Fisher. “The doctors have always said ‘The moment you stop using it, use it.’ So my goal every day is to use my body.”
