Objective: To describe the reduction in severity of sleep bruxism in a 9-year-old child receiving Torque Release Technique for vertebral subluxation.

Clinical features: A 9–year-old male with a 4-year history of sleep bruxism was presented for chiropractic care. Postural alterations were found in conjunction with indicators of vertebral subluxation throughout the spine.

Intervention & Outcomes: Chiropractic care using Torque Release Technique (TRT) was provided for vertebral subluxations. The patient demonstrated reported reduction in sleep bruxism and had objective improvement in posture.

Conclusion: A course of chiropractic care using TRT was associated with reduction of sleep bruxism and improvement in objective posture. More research is needed to investigate the role chiropractors may play in helping similar patients so as to inform clinical practice and future higher-level research designs.
