Children with sleep problems are reported to have more behavioural problems. Common interventions to address this include behavioural routines to improve sleep and pharmacological approaches although a search of existing literature revealed a marked lack of evidence. This case report describes the chiropractic management of sleep difficulties and challenging behaviour in a 5-year-old boy. The clinical presentation, assessment, and chiropractic management of the case is described. The outcome was a marked reduction in sleeping difficulty and a concurrent improvement in behaviour. This case study highlights the need for further study in the area of sleep disorders and associated behavioural issues in young children.
