Old Nick keeps Ma and Jack in a shed for a good chunk of their lives. He's both physically and emotionally abusive with them, and assaults Jack when he tries to run away.

A woman is repeatedly physically, sexually, and emotionally abused, but it is not recorded and does not involve multiple abusers/take place in public.

When Ma tries to point out issues with Old Nick (like not getting them better food), Old Nick pins the blame on her and makes her out to be the bad guy. When Ma has Jack fake sickness and tells Old Nick that Jack is sick because Old Nick cut the power, Old Nick says that it's her fault.

Not terribly abused, but there is a scene where Ma has to put a hot rag on his head which hurts him. There is also a scene where Old Nick is trying to wrestle Jack back into the truck.

i guess technically, since joy was abducted when she was 17, and subsequently routinely raped and eventually impregnated by her captor.

If you define captivity, dominance, deprivation and sexual assault on a regular basis as torture (a totally valid definition), then yes. My answer is based on the fact that no one in the movie is harmed with knives, pliers, electric shock, forced prolonged body positions or other pain-inducing actions typically/classically associated with the word "torture".

no but a child’s death is faked and in order to convince the captor that he’s really dead, ma puts on a heartbreaking performance of being a grieving parent, so it might be triggering regardless

Joy’s plan to free Jack could have resulted in her being killed by Old Nick/trapped in the room (something she seems to realise when she forms it). Thankfully this doesn’t happen.

The mother tries to make her son appear ill by sticking her fingers down her throat and getting sick about 35 minutes in. For a few minutes after it can be seen on a pillow. The mother also is found by her son in the bathroom getting sick at about an hour and a half in.
