How do you forget your Body and live with your Mind, when you're injured and i pain?

So yeah
Basically i have an injury that is painful and it's constant pain and sensations. My therapist said that our brain/head is the most important and is what makes us human and that i should not care
so much about the body...and try to be strong.

And well i have to be because i still have 2 weeks til my dr appt.
My question is, How? how do you ignore all the pain and discomfort that your body gives you and keep doing your life?

it's not about pretending the pain isn't there, friend. Unless the injury is a broken bone or you have specifically been told by the doc not to, make your body carry on as it would without the injury. Don't worsen it, but DO NOT baby it either, your mind will compensate, then your body will compensate to THAT, and repeat. Mild medication can take the edge off

Pain hurts. That's it. But it's your brain telling your body something hurts. I find it weird that you have a therapist telling you to ignore the pain. If your injured then go to an ER. If its a mild annoyance pain then yes tell your brain to ignore the pain.
