Actor Jeremy Renner has revealed the treatment he has undergone since he was seriously injured by his six-tonne snow plow in January.
The Marvel star, 52, was left with significant injuries and broke more than 30 bones after he was accidentally run over by the plow while helping a family member on New Year’s Day.
A police report said Renner’s nephew was trying to free his car from the snow when the vehicle began rolling downhill.
Renner was flown to the hospital in Reno, Nevada, and spent time in an intensive care unit.
In a new Instagram post, Renner has revealed the various treatments he has undergone since his accident.
He wrote: “I have explored ALL forms of therapy since January 14th…every day, countless hours of physical therapy, peptide injections, iv drips and pushes, stem cells and exosomes, red light / IR therapy, hyperbaric chamber 2.0 atmospheres , cold jump and the list goes on and on….
“My biggest therapy has been my mind and the will to be here and push to recover and get better… Be extraordinary… I feel it’s my duty to do that. Not to waste my life doing to be spared, but to give back to my family, friends and all of you who have given me strength to persevere. I thank you all. #loveandtitanium.”
Several of the treatments Renner refers to are usually used as anti-aging procedures for the skin – including injections of the protein peptide, exosome therapy – similar to stem cell therapy – and infrared therapy.
He also claims to have used a hyperbaric chamber, which involves breathing pure oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure.
Renner is best known for playing the superhero archer Hawkeye in the Marvel film The Avengers and the Disney+ series of the same name as his character.
He also received Oscar nominations for his roles in the war film The Hurt Locker and the drama The Town.
