Getting To Know The Adirondack PT&OT Team MICHELE KING, MS, OTR/L, FCE

Michele was born and raised in Sandy Creek, NY and went on to the Albany area directly from high school to pursue her Masters degree in Occupational Therapy at Russell Sage College. She graduated in 2004 and relocated to Oswego, NY where she began specializing in outpatient rehabilitation of both Hand Therapy, post Stroke Rehabilitation and concussion. Michele is skilled in fabrication of custom hand and upper extremity splinting to aid in the recovery of post surgical conditions. Michele has been dedicated to continuing education throughout her career and attended the Philadelphia Hand Symposium, a highly specialized three day intensive course on hand therapy and surgery, in 2006, 2007 and 2008. She also completed an intensive 3 week course and became certified in Neuro-development Developmental Treatment for Adult Hemiplegia (NDT) in 2005. Recently, along with other ADK staff, Michele became certified in Associative Awareness Technique (AAT) Level 1, an artful, healing approach to physical, emotional, or perceived trauma, based on years of neuro, and cognitive behavior sciences. AAT works to discharge trauma, thus reducing the physical manifestations of trauma, such as pain, muscle tension, fatigue, headaches, or trigger points. This technique has been monumental in improving patients conditions as a result of post- concussive trauma.

In 2006 Michele became a partner at Adirondack Therapy and opened their Oswego location in 2008. In 2010 she facilitated the project to build their current outpatient facility at 127 East First Street in Oswego. Throughout her career, Michele has gained the respect and trust of the most elite hand surgeons in Central New York, the regional Concussion Clinic and many of our local family physicians, nurse practitioners, and case managers. Michele is most proud of Adirondack’s reputation in the community as being a place of healing, and of the kind, caring, and dedicated front office and therapy staff. Michele currently treats in the Oswego clinic daily, as well as serves as an ergonomic consultant for both Novelis Corp. and Anheuser Busch in Baldwinsville, NY.
