About Us

Dr. Kat was inspired to open Kindred Chiropractic with the goal of supporting the diverse community of Wicker Park Chicago supporting individuals from infancy on. 

The word kindred is defined as family, and of a similar nature. We believe in seeing and treating people as whole diverse beautiful individuals deserving to be seen and cared for because you belong.

Kindred Chiropractic is an alternative health provider that can help lead patients on their musculoskeletal journey and to help direct and support their journey elsewhere when they need different support. 

Dr. Kat Aleman

 Chiropractic Physician

Dr. Kat Aleman was introduced to chiropractic as a high school student when she was hired as a chiropractic assistant in a local office. As a high schooler she had stressors like most kids, including hip pain and chronic headaches, after starting care she soon after was thriving without the need for over-the-counter medications she had been taking to manage her symptoms. 

After pursuing a pre-med bachelor’s degree she came full circle and decided that holistic chiropractic care was the nurturing career path she was looking for.

Dr. Kat Aleman received her Doctorate in Chiropractic from Logan University of chiropractic and health science in Chesterfield, Missouri one of the most reputable chiropractic institutions. She received her bachelor’s in biomedical sciences from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo Michigan. 

She has taken advanced training in prenatal and postnatal chiropractic health and wellness care, perinatal exercise, pediatrics, craniopathy, and craniosacral therapies, amongst others.

    Dr. Kat provides excellent care from diagnosis to treatment. Discusses patient activity in depth to find root cause of issues. Treatment is always effective. And she will provide an exercise regimen to reinforce effects of treatment. Excellent bedside manner. Highly recommended.

    Dr. Kat is amazing. Her adjustments are subtle and incredibly effective. There are no jarring twists and pops here. Nor are there any X-rays. She does a thorough assessment, uses massage and body movement to help move the body back into alignment. Her understanding and knowledge of the human body and its alignment is excellent. She has helped me with multiple issues with my neck and lower back and I am deeply grateful.

    Only the highest praise to offer here. To keep it brief, I’ll just say I’ve been seeking chiropractic care for the better part of 5 years, with 6 or 7 different practitioners, and I feel like I’ve finally reached the top of the game with Dr. Kat.

    It’s really reassuring to know she is trained in the Webster Technique and that her adjustments are gentle. I would recommend her not just for this kind of care, but for ongoing health and I hope to continue to see her as my body goes through postpartum, bringing my babies too.

    Dr. Kat is my favorite chiropractor! Her approach is informative and honest. I like that she walks me through the process of what she is doing. I always leave my appointments feeling like I can move more freely.

    I find Dr. Kat to be very effective. I have been seeing her on/off for at least 5 years. Her adjustments are gentle and effective. Her soft tissue work is extremely helpful at addressing even further what is happening in the body. I can't recommend her enough. And, as a fellow healthcare practitioner, I regularly refer my patients to her when I recognize that they could benefit from what she offers.
