November 13, 2012 (3:59 am) GMT
The Shawn Johnson partner on 'Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars' will continue dancing 'through the pain and discomfort' until the end of the current season.

, who was forced to take a break from last week's episode of ": All-Stars" due to neck injury, gives update on his health condition. He says on his website that he will get under the knife once he has time off, which may happen after the current season of the dancing competition ends.

Feeling better after the much-needed break, he vows to finish "DWTS" this season with his partner . "I've had a neck injury for quite a while and it's been plaguing me for some time. Eventually, when I have time off I'll have to get surgery but until then Im gonna push on and dance through the pain and discomfort," he says.

"But I still have to be cautious because it only takes one small wrong move for me to be back in agony," he notes, before concluding, "I also want to thank you all for your support and encouraging words throughout my healing process. I'm excited to get back on stage tonight and rock it out with Shawn. Remember to vote for #TeamShawnough!"

Last week when Derek couldn't perform, Shawn did her routine with Mark Ballas, who partnered at the beginning of the dancing competition but was eliminated a few weeks ago.
