May be "tough", but doesn't seem too wise.

Either she is wearing this brace for show, or she really needs it. If she risks her own health for this dance, she is very stupid.

I was rooting for Hines and Kym all along. Not so sure this is such a wise move for her to keep competing. Hope she'll be ok.

Maybe they can incorporate the brace into their next routine, by dressing her up like a "robot" or something of the like . . .

I'm not a doctor, but it seems to me that if she has to wear a neck brace like that, she has a serious neck injury and continuing to dance is dangerous and risky.
Here's an idea. Last week, Ralph injured his knee badly (a ruptured Baker's cyst, which usually takes at least a month to heal). So why don't Kym and Ralph sit out this week's performance and trade partners - Hines, Kym's partner, would dance with Karina, Ralph's partner. DWTS has done this before, pairing a contestant with a new pro when the usual pro was sick or injured.

Hines Ward and his football player teamates ply through pain and serious injury all the time. Especially they play through pain for the big games and paychecks. Dancers perform through pain all the time. Especially they perform for the big shows and paychecks. Kym would be letting down Team Dancer if she did not do what Hines Ward has done many times before in his career.

I think that she is just been very committed to her job. It shows good sportsmanship on her part. I don't think she would risk her health if she was in grave danger. To the idiot that would make such racist remark. Get over yourself this is the twenty century, to each its own dirty bag. And to the fool that think she need sympathy votes I dont think so. But since you're in doubt vote for them anyway.
