Over the course of 700 major league games I have needed a lot of help to maintain the level of performance needed to be successful against the best hitters in the world. Since coming to the Washington Nationals in 2014 Angela Gordon has helped me stay on the mound. Angela is one of a few people across the country that I trust to treat my arm and body. She can do something as simple as soft tissue massage or use dry needling to help my different muscle aches and pains release and recover. Over the course of 162 games and being in my upper 30s there are a lot of different aches and pains that come up. Angela has helped me avoid any disabled list time and made sure that any down time I have during the season will be kept to a minimum. Without her I am sure my performance would have suffered.

Angela and the Advanced Kinetics team are extremely reliable and have helped me numerous times. They have worked with me for many years now to be able to compete on the field at the highest level possible while staying healthy. They create a great environment in the facility to where rehabbing or any other type of exercise doesn't seem like a chore, rather something to look forward to. They are trustworthy, straightforward, and a group of people that I can continuously rely on in the future. As a baseball player, I am relieved that I can always rely on Angela to keep me healthy and allow me to perform to the best of my ability!
