Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I need to store the editing history of a region in a PostGIS database for statistical analysis. Correct me if I am wrong, but my understanding is Osmosis only writes the current versions to the database and does not include the history of the elements. Is there any other tool that can help me store the necessary information to a database?

Your question assumes you will be able to do the analysis you need in PostGIS, but it's far from clear that this is possible. Perhaps rephrase your question to include what your goal is, rather than just one step of your process?

If you don't need relations, try Peter K├Ârner's history tools. The history importer creates a full-history database in an osm2pgsql-like format that is already quite useful for some kinds of statistical analysis.
