The efficacy of chiropractic treatments is regularly challenged and this represents a risk to the industry. However, the industry's services are gaining more acceptance due to increased research into the cost effectiveness and the scientific viability of chiropractics, and greater community awareness of health issues. Australia's population is ageing and this, along with an increase in the incidence of chronic diseases, is benefitting demand for the industry's services.
The Chiropractic Services industry is expected to generate revenue of approximately $959.1 million in 2012-13, accounting for about 0.6% of health expenditure in Australia.
Practices in this industry provide chiropractic and osteopathic services.
