Despite suffering a dislocated shoulder, Derek Hough’s ballroom routine with sister Julianne Houghwent off without a hitch onTuesday night’s episode ofDancing with the Stars.
Although the older Hough, 26, says he got through his performance with the help of cortisone shots, he says he’ll heal completely only the help of a woman’s TLC.
“I just need a nice lady to take care of me,” he told PEOPLE backstage after Tuesday night’s show. “That’s all I need.”
“My shoulder bothered me this morning,” he said. “It was excruciating. It popped out for a second. I’ll take it easy a little bit and see how it is, but it’s fine.”
Despite the pain, his performance with his sister – their first together on TV since season 8 of ABC’s hit show – was well worth it.
“It was just a nice sentimental moment for both of us,” Derek said. “We had just barely choreographed the routine and put it together last minute, but it was great.”
