Our Providers

Kenneth Thunder, MD


​​​​​​​

For more than 25 years, Dr. Thunder has studied chronic pain and how it is treated by the mainstream medical community. As a former emergency physician, he has witnessed the devastation that chronic pain can cause and the many impediments within our medical system which make it difficult for patients to receive optimum care.

Amanda Melone, MD

Dr. Melone has been dedicated to medical research and patient care for more than two decades. Double boarded in both psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry, she brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Thunder Pain and Wellness.

Pearla McDonald, APRN


​​​​​​​

Sandy McHaney, RN


​​​​​​​

Dr. Thunder and Sandy worked together at the Reno VA Hospital, so we knew just who to call when we needed another nurse. Sandy approaches her patients and everyone around her with a tremendous amount of respect, tenderness, and care (except when she’s treating one of us to a dose of her wickedly sly sense of humor).

Trina Spaulding, MS, LAT

Trina Spaulding is a Manual Athletic Therapist who founded Thunder Pain Management with Dr. Thunder in 2014. For 30 years, she’s been helping her patients live more active, productive, and fulfilling lives.
