The Dancing With the Stars pro, 37, has been away from the rehearsals since suffering the injury during practice with partner Heather Morris last week.

On March 29, he posted a photo of himself from his hospital bed and captioned it,

“Getting un-broken.”

Now, he is slowly recovering thanks to physical therapy.

During Vegas Night, Maks had come into the ballroom in order to congratulate his partner Heather Morris and also deliver an update on his wellness. He told host Tom Bergeron that he was hoping to be at his best again by the end of this week.

“I’m hoping for a full comeback [by the] end of this week and then we’ll start rehearsing

ET Online met Peta Murgatroyd behind the scenes to discuss her beau’s big return. The new mom, of course, was elated by Maks’ progress. Peta hopes her future husband will be back on “DWTS” in Week 5.

“It was nice having him here. He’s going to be back soon I think…I don’t know if he’ll be dancing next week, but the next week after he will definitely be dancing.”

Maksim Sharing His Recovery

Maks has been sharing social media updates with fans about his healing process. On Sunday, the “DWTS” pro uploaded a progress video from physical therapy. In it, he is seen walking across the floor as if he was never hurt.

“Therapy day 3 post calf muscle tear, progress check…”

the 37-year-old captioned the clip, alongside the hashtags, #MyDocIsBetterThanYours and #ModernDayMiracles.

In the posted video, Chmerkovskiy can be seen pacing back and forth, even demonstrating his sharp grapevine abilities. He states:

“It’s getting there. Almost,”

On Thursday, a source revealed to ET that Chmerkovskiy tore his calf muscle “pretty badly,” and that he’s undergone a series of shots to help recover.

“It’s a lot worse than everyone initially thought, Doctors are insisting that Maks sit out for at least a month, but knowing Maks, he will try and rush it and get back into the competition.”

In the meantime, Alan Bersten has been acting as a substitute during Chmerkovskiy’s absence and scored 30 out of 40 with Morris during last week’s episode of Dancing With the Stars for their jive set to “Grown” by Little Mix.
