Turns out, Hannah Brown’s Dancing With the Stars victory took a toll on her. The former Bachelorette star, who won the ABC show’s 28th season, recently revealed on Instagram that she hasn’t been able to work out as usual for the past five months because of her injuries.

“I think a lot of my body hurting comes from some issues that started on Dancing with the Stars and I just kept going from zero to 100 — I’m either all or nothing — and pushed it too much to where I now have, like, some issues that I am having to deal with physical therapy,” Brown told followers in an Instagram Stories update.

Sometimes the professionals get injured, too. Burke, a pro dancer on DWTS since 2006, took a hard fall during a rehearsal with partner AJ McLean and hit her head on the parquet. “It happened so fast; I just heard her head hit the floor,” McLean told viewers. Luckily, Burke—who proposed the idea of a “redemption” season for injured DWTS contestants in a TV Insider interview —made a full recovery.
