Not too long ago we wrote about how the Dancing with the Stars couples have been using their impressive Twitter followings to connect with fans and encourage them to vote. On Thursday, beloved pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy decided to answer some fan questions over Twitter. Apparently, he did so while having some therapy done on his leg, which sounds like it’s still damaged from his Week 3 Rumba fall.

As he tweets: MaksimC: “Doing some electric stem therapy on my leg....will answer some questions. GO!”

As you can imagine, some fans wanted to know more about the therapy itself.

vraggs: “what is the benefit to this therapy?”
MaksimC: “breaking down scar tissue as well as repairing tears and pulls in combination with ultra sound therapy.”

JBC2000: “does electrocuting your leg hurt u?
MaksimC: “as long as it helps.”

Other fans went with more general interest questions:
