Jeremy Renner is continuing to update his supportive fans on his recovery journey after being run over by a snowplow last December, leaving him with “30 plus broken bones.” In his latest Instagram post, the 52-year-old actor revealed he’s undergoing “electric stimulation workouts” as part of the program. He shared a photo photo of an electronic device with attachments on his right leg.

Given the extent of his injuries, the recovery process could be years.

The incident occurred in December when Jeremy stepped in front of a massive moving snow plow in order to avoid his nephew being injured — instead, the Marvel star himself was “was pulled under the vehicle by the track and run over,” per police reports. The incident could have also been fatal: during a 911 call from a neighbor, the person could be heard saying, “We just need someone here right away with live-saving techniques…He got crushed underneath it, yeah. There is a lot of blood over here, so you need to get someone over here immediately.”

Initial reports put him in critical condition, but by Jan. 6, he was able to provide an update to fans. Captioning a hospital bed selfie, he wrote, “Thank you all for your kind words. Im too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”

Recently, Renner, who famously portrays Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, underwent an intense “Electric Stimulation Workout” to help aid in his rehabilitation after the accident. This type of exercise utilizes controlled electrical stimulation to strengthen and exercise the muscles, and is most commonly used in physical therapy for muscle rehabilitation.

The intense workout reportedly also utilized heavy vibrations and focused electrical pulses, in addition to stretches and range of motion exercises. While there is no word yet on the extent of his injury, due to the seemingly rigorous activity, Renner appears to be recovering well.

Videos of the unconventional workout were recently posted to Renner’s social media accounts, where he showcased his progress and thanked his physical therapist for her assistance throughout the process. Fans were quick to respond with messages of encouragement and well wishes, praising the actor’s commitment to his own health and welfare.

The actor famously dabbles in many other roles beyond his Marvel portrayal, such as his work as a producer and singer-songwriter.

It is evident that Renner is determined to make a full recovery, and here’s hoping the Academy Award nominated actor makes a speedy and successful return to the silver screen.
