Now, two months later, PEOPLE reports that Kevin is focusing on full recovery through his dedication to physical therapy. According to a source who spoke to the magazine:

'Kevin still receives physical therapy. He works very hard. It's obvious that his determination has helped him tremendously. He doesn't drive himself yet though and instead has a driver.'

The source also adds that the stand-up comedian went as far as staying at a live-in physical center before returning home with his wife, Eniko Parrish.

Despite his dedication, Pop Culture reveals that the road to recovery is a long one for the "Night School" actor, who suffered from back injuries from the crash.

After the incident, several people claimed that Kevin's recovery would be a tough one, especially after the father-of-three had to undergo an emergency back surgery following the accident.

However, just a week after the surgery, the "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" star was already at the physical center, working his way to recovery.

According to a report by Daily Mail, Kevin shared his experience since the accident, which he calls life-changing, via an Instagram post. The footage shows a glimpse of the wrecked car and then cuts to Kevin at the hospital and the physical center.

Meanwhile, Kevin's voice states in the background:

'Basically, what you realize is that you're not in control. No matter how much you think you're in control, you're not in control. When God talks, you gotta listen,' he continues, as clips show him struggling to walk again after being bedridden for weeks.'

At the end of the video, a doctor informs the 40-year-old that it would take him at least a year to attain perfect health.

Kevin, who isn't surprised by the diagnosis, replies that he is in no hurry to get to the end of the journey.
