The 52-year-old Avengers star suffered over 30 broken bones and internal injuries after being run over by a 7-ton snowplow in Nevada while trying to help his nephew. Jeremy was saved by his neighbor Rich Kovach who called 911 and was there with him the whole time. Jeremy’s nephew who he was trying to save, Alex Fries, was also there holding his hand. Hollywood actor Jeremy Renner has been undergoing an extensive regimen of therapies and treatments as part of his recovery process from a near-fatal snowplow accident that occurred in January this year.

In an interview on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Jeremy explained how he was optimistic and wanted a fast recovery. He said, “People thought I was gonna die, I am like no man, I kept trying to get out of the hospital …”. He spent over two weeks in the hospital and faced a long road to recovery.

In a recent Instagram post, Renner shared a selfie wearing a red light therapy mask and gave fans an update on the various modalities he has been exploring.

I have been exploring EVERY type of therapy since Jan 14th,” wrote Renner in the caption. He listed some of the therapies, including “physical therapy, peptide injections, IV drips and pushes, stem cell and exosomes, red light/IR therapy, hyperbaric chamber 2.0 atmospheres, cold plunge, and more.

In his post, Renner said that while exploring various medical therapies, “My greatest therapy has been my mind and the will to be here and push to recover and be better.” Similarly, entrepreneur Bryan Johnson has also been vocal about his positive experiences with light therapy, emphasizing its benefits for overall well-being and cognitive enhancement.

Red light therapy involves exposure to red and near-infrared light, which some studies have indicated may help reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen production, and accelerate wound healing. The selfie Renner shared showed him undergoing this treatment with a mask emitting red light onto his face and neck. Though the effects are still being researched, many celebrities have embraced it as a way to reduce signs of aging, treat acne, and speed recovery from injuries or surgery.

Renner’s post gives fans a glimpse into the intensive recovery process he has dedicated himself to over the past 10 months. From physical rehabilitation to more cutting-edge therapies like stem cells and exosomes, he seems to be leaving no stone unturned. His positive attitude and determination to get back to his best despite a horrific accident have inspired many of his fans and followers on social media. While continuing to explore different medical modalities, Renner credits his mental strength and willpower as his “greatest therapy” – an inspiring message as he works to overcome the challenges in his recovery journey.

Fans will hope this latest update means Renner is continuing to make progress after the life-threatening ordeal. Only time will tell how much the various therapies have helped, but his resilience in facing extensive physical and mental recovery is admirable. His dedication to exploring innovative treatments shows his commitment to regaining his health and returning to work after such a traumatic start this year.

Bouncing back with style, Renner’s recovery journey this year is anything but ordinary! Jeremy was found stealing the spotlight at the Los Angeles premiere of his Disney+ series “Rennervations” in April and turning heads at an Arizona fan convention in June.

He told USA Today at the event that, “The show became a wonderful milestone for me to aim toward my physical health, for me to be here and share the story, to share this journey, and it’s been quite an honor to do so.” Renner has stayed actively engaged with his career throughout the recovery process. He told USA Today that having the show to promote helped motivate his recovery.

The actor is also set to reprise his role as Hawkeye in an upcoming Disney+ special. Fans will no doubt be eager to see how much further Renner has come since last sharing updates on social media. With his positive attitude and relentless exploration of therapies, it seems his determination to make a full recovery from the snowplow accident remains as strong as ever.
