"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.
