After sustaining life-threatening injuries, it seemed for a time that Renner would never walk again.

But his recovery efforts, including physical therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and a number of complex medical procedures, have allowed the actor to make humungous strides in his physical and mental health.

Jeremy Renner was injured after a safety brake failure on his massive Pistenbully Snowcat plow gave way, pinning him between the plow and a neighbor’s car which Renner had been helping to dig out of the snow.

The Avengers actor was known as a community leader within his Lake Tahoe neighborhood, often assisting his friends and neighbors with neighborhood maintenance and upkeep.

Due to the nature of the injury and the harsh weather conditions, Renner was airlifted to the nearest hospital with life-threatening injuries, leaving the Hawkeye actor to pen a note to his loved ones on the way to the operating table in case he didn’t make it.

According to his most recent Instagram post, he has undergone trials of every kind of therapy, physical, mental, and otherwise, in order to regain his strength and move on from the accident.

In an awareness-raising caption on his latest social media post, Renner has informed his followers of the greatest support to his ongoing health, his regularly scheduled therapy appointments which the star credits as sharpening his mind and willpower to continue pushing onward.

Successful Recovery During Strikes

While the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strikes have prevented nearly all Hollywood productions from filming new content through a bulk of this year, Jeremy Renner has been slowly regaining his ability to walk, making the timing of the labor movement something of a blessing in disguise for the Hawkeye actor.

While Renner likely won’t be performing back-flips and high-wire spin-kicks any time soon, the year-long recovery period has proven to be highly successful, bringing the performer closer to performing with the Avengers again with each passing day.
