Carrie Ann Inaba, everyone’s favorite female Dancing With The Stars judge, is undergoing surgery next week in L.A. According to a report by PEOPLE, the operation is supposed to help relieve pressure and stiffness that Carrie has been experiencing in her neck.
Carrie’s pain is being caused by a condition referred to as spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal canal often caused by an injury or arthritis. â€œI have arthritis. The space around my spinal cord has become compressed,â€ Carrie told PEOPLE. â€œI have been locked. My neck was so stiff. Weâ€™re hoping this procedure will relieve that.â€
â€œIâ€™ll be fine and if this surgery goes well, I may have another one in the future,â€ Carrie added. She still plans on attending this weekend’s Dizzy Feet Foundation Celebration of Dance fundraiser. Carrie helped found Dizzy Feet and has been heavily involved in the foundation.
