Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba Battles Spinal Condition

I didn’t realize Carrie Ann has been battling a spinal condition, did you? It’s a condition that effects more than 400,000 Americans called “Spinal Stenosis” which is a narrowing of the spinal canal that ends up pinching spinal nerves. She’s ok now, but, it’s something she very much has to watch and still take care of.

“It was the middle of the season and I started to feel really, really stiff. I think it was two seasons ago and it just got worse and worse. I thought it was maybe because I was working out or maybe because maybe I wasn’t working out. I couldn’t figure out what it was, I tried everything and nothing helped,” said Inaba.

The diagnosis was spinal stenosis — a narrowing of the spinal canal that causes pinching on the nerves. She says she underwent surgery and steroid injections to relieve the pressure.

“And it’s pretty bad. I still have to watch it,” said Inaba.
