Neighborhood Neuropathy / Sky Dive Truckee Tahoe as Seen on Nevada Business Chronicles
You're. Watching Nevada business Chronicles. Take, a journey with us to see the innovative, businesses that, put Nevada, on the business map. Connecting. You with the businesses events, and organizations that. Bring innovation and, prosperity to. The Nevada area please, welcome your host Mitch, Berney. If. You or someone you know suffers from, a neuropathy, you need to pay attention to this segment we're here with Patrick Doyle the founder, of neighborhood, neuropathy, center of Reno thank you so much for having us here glad you could be here tell, me a little bit about neighborhood. Neuropathy, center what, is neuropathy. Probably. Is a disease of the nerves where, people experience, pain or lack, of pain so. What are some of the causes of, neuropathy, and. What. Are some of the symptoms the. Main cause is diabetes. That, would be followed up shortly by chemotherapy, drugs, those are the two large, ones there's, a lot of other smaller, causes, too but they all contribute, that that's. In the metabolic side also. On the mono. Neuropathy, side you have compression, so. A surgery, that went wrong or, maybe. A motor vehicle accident what. Are some of the symptoms that, I'd experience, if I had neuropathy, the most common symptom is pain of, some description so, people use insects, biting their feet they use barbed wire wrapped around their feet fire. Ice. Pins. And needles and nails electric. Arcing those are very very common symptoms. Another. Symptom is that they can't sleep at night it. Wakes them up between two and three and four o'clock in the morning that's the most common common. Reported, symptom I mean you're talking quality, of life how many people, suffer, from neuropathy, if, you looked at only the chemotherapy. Patients, and the diabetic, patients, about, 40, million people in the United States how does chemotherapy. Play into neuropathy. The. Chemotherapy, drugs affect. The nerves and 70, percent of those people will experience peripheral, neuropathy, at some point, 70. Percent yes very. Will. Suffer neuropathy, yes we. Deal with the polyneuropathy, so. Causes. Fund, beanies causes. From chemotherapy. Vitamin. B12 deficiency. Alcohol. And excessive, use a, number, of different farm chemicals those are all types.
Of Neuropathy that we can deal with untreated. There are some very serious potential. Risks well. Fall risk is the biggest potential, risk and what is progressive, disease so people move from the pain cycle, into. The numbness, or no pain cycle which, is worse because they have a lack, of sensation, they don't know where they're putting their feet so for an example they may not know where they're putting their. Foot on the brake or the accelerator, because they have no sensation and when you have no sensation you. Have a balance problem and therefore you have a fall risk a fall, risk at twenty is one thing you're 20 but. It's. Different if you're a little more mature, it. Is it's it's a lot more dangerous there's a lot more health risks associated with that if people have Falls and at, an older age the. The. Disease really, sets in probably, about five years before people realize they have it wait, a second so it you. Can have this, and. Not. Even know it absolutely, yeah yeah, what are some of those early. Indicators. That maybe people would, pay attention to if they knew about them, that would help them even mitigate, that five years there's no real early indicators, for, the first five or six years it's the next decade, that you have little, things like my feet hurt a little bit or my toes hurt a little bit or a little bit of tingling going on once in a while the. Same symptoms, but just not as pronounced, and then, over, the next decade, those symptoms increase to the point where the, person needs to do something about it they feel that now they, actually have to do something and that might be 20 years later. What. Are the advantages, of early, detection and early treatment as with, any medical condition, if you can address the problem earlier, the results will be better in a shorter period of time neuropathy, can, commonly. Be a circulation. Issue generally. Speaking that's what it is so, treated. Early we're talking about not, allowing the, nerves. And, the, vessels. To deteriorate. And, improve, the circulation, that's. Exactly what you want to do you want to try to keep feeding the nutrients, to the extremities, because this is peripheral, neuropathy, so it's dealing with the hands, but, by moremore, the feet, and that's at the very end and and the vessels are very very small, there so we keep those alive and, keep the tissue alive, and you're, going to forestall, the eventual, you. Can delay it you can even somewhat, reverse it but. Not cure it you can't cure it but you can reverse it you can, have a better quality of life a. Substantially. Better quality of life well let's take a look some of the treatment options okay. Tell. Me about Rosa's, case of neuropathy it's, not. Your traditional type. It's. Not the traditional type that we see in here it's not peripheral, neuropathy, Rosa, had a case of shingles and her whole side of her face was full of sores, and, that, was about maybe a year ago and then after the sores went away she was left with what we call post herpetic neuralgia. So. She still has the horrible nerve pain even, though she doesn't have any outward signs of, the, shingles anymore, so. Her daughter heard about us and gave us a call and wanted to know if we, could help her, how.
Did You know if this treatment would benefit, Rosa I've, had other patients before, who, have experienced. Relief using, infrared light therapy, for the. Same condition, so. Rosa came in and had. A treatment to see if this was going to work for her she, did we had a conversation and, with her husband and her daughter and they were a little skeptical, you, know kind of just curious. About whether they thought it would work and they, were gonna go home and talk about it but I offered, why don't we just give you a treatment today and you can see what the treatment is like and she, had immediate, results, immediate, immediate, results it's after the 20 minute treatment which. She. Sat there and was like oh my goodness, immediate. Results for, her relief. Relief for. Her family, relief, relief, it, was an extraordinary experience, yes how. Do you determine if somebody's a good candidate, for therapy. The. Best way is to determine what group they fall into and. If they fall into the. Metabolic group we know we're going to be able to help those people and the, other thing we want to do is determine the severity of the problems so with those two answers. We. Can then decide. If they're, a candidate and then what care plan would be appropriate, and. We do that through a series of tests. And most, of them are sensation, tests are simple little tests, now they test for hot and cold and, sharpened doll and standard. Tests are used throughout the industry but what we do is we add all these tests, up and then come up with a score, in, addition, to that we do a balanced test so we wanted to determine what their fall risk is we have three basic things that we do here and one, of them is nutritional, we want to allow the body to create more nitric oxide, that. The vibration. And the light, therapy devices release, into the bloodstream which. Acts as a vasodilator which. Is another, word for increasing, circulation that's exactly. What we're all about is increasing, local circulation. How does circulation. Then impact, somebody's, neuropathy. Well, circulation. As we're increasing, circulation nurser. Regenerating. New cap layers are being formed. Nutrients. Are being fed to the area and pain, is being reduced. What. Interests me is that somebody. That has gone from as you mentioned, having, pain to having no pain when. They first begin treatment you. Have to go back through. The. Pain cycle again how does that work the progression, of this disease is, from mild, symptoms, a little bit of pain a little bit of tingling to, more severe, pain and, more. Severe tingling, and arcing and things like that into a, lack, of sensation, that's. Actually worse that's. Where the fall risk comes into play and our. Goal is to take. Them back through that whole thing as we, go back we're, going to go back through the cessation and they, may feel some tingling they may feel some discomfort on, the, way now, through, early intervention if we can eliminate allowing.
That Person to go all the way to, the lack, of sensation, section. Then, we stay. We start earlier, and remember, we should start earlier it's easier, to get that better results, so what, do you have going on here well, this is a typical, setup where the patient. Sits in here for light therapy, and so we have all the devices pre connected, we just hook a little up here we have the massage, plate the vibration, plate which is good for the calves and for the feet and. Over here is a massage, chair that. We typically use for the caregiver, that's, sitting, here for 20 minutes with nothing to do so they get a free massage what. Type of treatment is this this. Is a pulsed electromagnetic, field, bed known as pea EMF we use this for all patients one of the things that I think is really. Important, for people understand. Is your. History in this industry and, that. You wanted, to make sure that your protocol, was, affordable. To, more. People than. It has been in the past, well. We built light devices, since 2003. And supplied them to I'm, gonna say over a thousand, clinics around the country and, what, we found is that the prices, that people were charging, for the protocol, for the care plans was, excessive, and we, opened this clinic with the idea to bring the cost down into. Line so more people could afford it how, long is the typical treatment, protocol typically. It's in clinic and it's 12 weeks long but. Some patients need further care and so, we've developed a program where they can do something at home it also works for people that have a mobility, problem they just physically, can't get to the clinic because of distance or they, don't drive and. So, you can still help them improve their quality of life as well we can yeah and that's what we developed that for to be able to reach more people for, somebody watching, right now that wants to come in and get an evaluation and. See if this treatment, is right for them how would they get hold of you the. Simplest way is to call us at, the clinic on seven, seven five three, eight. Two one. Four. One five or, they, can go online at, neighborhood, neuropathy, comm and we're, located about one block from the airport, very, easy to find very, easy to park and anybody. That, has. A family, member or suffers. From neuropathy, themselves. Should, so, thank you so much for. Taking the time out of your day and joining us oh thank you for having me. For. More information.

On, today's episode you're, gonna need to hold on to your hats literally. We're. With Mike Jen and Jules at skydive. Truckee, Tahoe, thank, you so much for having us here thank you welcome. Why. Did you take that on as a business, and more importantly why here. We're. Skydiving, family and when, we arrived in Truckee. Tahoe we, thought, why is there not a skydiving scene - yeah these, are the most incredible views that you've ever seen you, get up in the plane Lake. Tahoe, the surrounding, reservoirs, the, mountains. It's absolutely, gorgeous and freefall you, get just an incredible opportunity to see the area yeah, Mike and I were in the car one day and we were just, thinking about how beautiful the place is and really, I think, I said to him well he said to me this. It's crazy that there's not a skydiving, Santa here already, why isn't there and so we started the whole process of finding, out what we can do to bring skydiving, to Truckee Tahoe and share, it with everybody, that hadn't. Experienced, it here before yeah. One thing that's really special about this location, is that when you show up everything. Happens in one spot you, get. Your briefing, you. Load the airplane and then you land at the end of your jump so it's really nice for people's. Family, and friends, I come out to watch it's all in one location. Mike, this is more than just a passion, for you skydiving. You've done this professionally. Competitively. Yep, yeah I've been skydiving for about 29 years and, competed. And, filmed. Done. A lot of traveling all over the world skydiving.
And BASE jumping in speed riding when we moved here to Truckee, there, was one thing that was missing and that was skydiving here, we, were really stoked to be able to offer it to people you, add a level. To, the. Secure. Of somebody who's diving. For, the first time you, know those people that are kind of concerned. About it because they've never done it sure how many times have, you skydived, I've got about twenty. Three thousand, five hundred skydives. Just. That. Number, is. Astounding. Yet okay so people that have this skydiving's. Dangers well twenty three thousand five hundred times you've been up you came down and you're, still you're talking to me yeah it's it's a really really, safe spot I mean it's come so, far in the last 50 years you know in the last last. Twenty. Thirty years even, more so the, equipment is the, modern equipment, super safe anybody, can skydive it it, comes from a time where you. Had to be a certain, type. Of person. To actually want to go out and pound yourself, into the ground under these old, military. Round canopies, and now, anybody, from an 18 year old all, the way up to an 80 90, year old person can, experience God up Mike's. Not the only highly, highly qualified. Jump. Instructor. That you have here all of our instructors have, thousands, of skydives they're very experienced. And along with that our operation. Is a, member of the United States parachute, Association what does that really mean to somebody who's gonna skydive with you the United States parachute Association, is the governing body of skydiving, in the United States and we. Adhere, to all their safety guidelines that they set up in fact we exceed, in many, areas of their, guidelines that, they have yeah. Safety is really, really important, to us and we we realize that it's. An issue that's on people's, minds, we follow the rules and we do we go above and beyond what is required of us we want people to know that when they come to our skydiving. Center that they're they're, gonna be taken care of they're gonna be given, a lot of personal, attention so, we walk people through from, the start from the booking to the time that they leave one. Of us is always around guiding. The whole process and, so that's also another thing that adds to people. Feeling safe today, we're gonna get to see somebody experience this for the first time we are cool is that yeah yeah I think she might be a little nervous well let's go see. Okay. Perfect. Okay all, right. Ready. Yeah I'm ready, all right let's do a caution, to the wind all right. The. Closest, Skydiving, Center Torino. And the shores of Lake Tahoe, skydive. Trek Utah Volvo's scenic, views of Lake Tahoe brought your entire freefall, experience, and most, of your parachute, ride. I. Want, to do it again. They're. Coming to Skynet Trekkie tahoe you nailed it. I'm. Sure this isn't your last night uh no. Guys. Thank, you good, guy. Alright. Where's the job application. Right. Up here babe right up here oh. My. Gosh. It. Is scary, though I mean jumpy now is, but. You don't have a choice when someone's did you do a couple flips I don't, know what I did that was, like my favorite part just sky earth but then there's like sky it's Ajo Ajo I. Think, I was just I don't know like all of us on the plane got really small and far away and. Somehow. Going up in that plane it's scary in the beginning you feel this this anticipation and, anxiety for, sure but, then you get high enough that you feel like you're in a normal aircraft and, all of a sudden the, ground doesn't seem like the ground it just seems like a map or Google, Maps or something and so it's it, is terrifying, to jump out we're such a millennial. But then when. You're finally I, don't, know in the air and you've kind of relaxed and you can put your arms out I think I I don't think I had very good form because I was freaking out but it, really is pretty incredible yeah. What about you.
Uh-uh You, know it I didn't have much anxiety going up I'm, the plane ride itself was just incredible. You know you're you're looking at 360. Miles long. By the breadth of sixty miles of the Sierra and oftentimes, we only know it, by where they put the pavement and so, being above it you just get to see the expanse, of the land and how large Tahoe, actually, is and just, it's such a special place and, then you're seeing it from a special angle and and it, just makes the whole experience so, special so. For me I was just I think a little bit I felt pretty calm going up you, know fantastic, pilot. Awesome. Staff, Stevo. And Christine, and then when you go out it's just you're, so in the moment it's like everything, that you're you're trying to to. Even, think about or process, goes out the window literally, as you go out the window and you're just you're just living it's. Just you know I think that's the best part about it especially you. Know in our world is, sometimes. It's hard to just find, a moment and then. Skydiving. With skydive. Truckee Tahoe the moment finds you so, yeah, I was amazing yeah that was amazing, that's, absolutely. I'll put it in our yearly budget. Did, you see your face, reaction. Every. Day know, why you love, what you do. What. Type of people have. You taken up I mean who's sitting, here watching right, now should, consider coming out to go skydiving for the first time if, you're over 18 come. And jump we. Need a little bit of athletic ability I have to be able to lift your legs up on landing, but, we you. Know we take anyone. From 18 up, we've, had a 90 year old gentleman, come and jump with us 90 years old Oh. Fantastic. Really. Everybody. That, can physically do it should do it because. It's something that changes. People's lives I mean it sounds dramatic and it sounds like, a good story but it does really, change people's lives sometimes, because, it's a it's a huge facing. Of fears it's, a huge accomplishment. There's, a spiritual. Element to it there's just it activates, you on so many different levels because, it's. Not something you do every day and it takes a lot for somebody. To want. To jump out of a plane but doing. It is an experience, like, like. Nothing else I always say there's nothing that's like skydiving it's, gotta be a bucket list for a lot of people they haven't done it yet and, on top of that from. Personal experience I can say top. Five things I've ever done in my lifetime. It's. Amazing, and that's why we do it because we love to hear people's. Reactions, people who jump for the first time it's incredible. To see how they react when they land how, they feel about it it's just it's amazing and most people get down and want to go straight back up again you know for people sitting here watching. This now going oh my gosh I really need, to but I'm I'm still a little hesitant we, need to be honest mike has been a little bit modest with us twenty-three thousand five hundred flights that's not a joke that's a real number. But, it's even. More than that, it, is, more than that and mike is very modest, about it but we, like to tell people since, he's one, of our owners of SCADA of Truckee Tahoe it's worth people knowing that Mike, is also a multiple, time world champion. He's. An, athlete, for, red ball he's, a stunt, person. In. Movies, and movies that people know yes. Transformers. 3, and Point, Break he. Did the stunts for that why, very, cool I think that's good for people to know that you've got somebody that's at the helm of this operation that is. Really. Really experienced. And has done, so, much in the sport and that's the, basis, for the formation, of the entire company, is and that's where your commitment, to safety. And standards, and experience. And then. You add to that the beauty of Truckee. Tahoe. It's. A spectacular, like. If there's ever gonna be a place that you're gonna want to skydive for the first time I don't care where you are in the world you need to come here to do it you. Just.
