According to the Private Health Insurance Administration Council (PHIAC), osteopathy treatments increased 67% in the 3 years to 2011. To put this in perspective, the total growth in manual therapies (osteopathy, physiotherapy and chiropractic) rose only 20% over the same period. As PHIAC only tallies treatments that are claimed through private health insurance, the actual number of osteopathy treatments is actually much higher.
