Dancing With The Stars pro Kym Johnson has been given the all-clear to return to the ballroom following a nasty spill during rehearsals Friday.

The 34-year-old dancer was put in a neck brace and rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by ambulance after falling and injuring her neck during practice.

She was examined and tested, and was released several hours later feeling 'bruised and sore' and wearing a neck brace, according to a statement from DWTS.

Late Saturday,  Kym was tweeting, "I'm feeling better today and I am so happy my Mom is here with me." And by Sunday, the blonde bombshell, who this season is partnered with NFL great Hines Ward, was told she was free to return to the dance floor.

Kym and Hines have made it through to the final four couples on this season's show and will compete for the coveted mirror ball trophy if they make it through the next round, Monday and Tuesday on ABC.
