Integrative Diagnosis – Muscle, Nerve & Joint Problems

Integrative Diagnosis is your fast track to clinical excellence and practice success. This is a cutting-edge educational and certification program for healthcare providers that specialize in the diagnosis and conservative treatment of muscle, nerve, and joint problems. 

What makes Integrative Diagnosis unique?

Diagnosis: The ID system shows you how to establish a diagnosis that includes the exact tissue and pathology responsible for your patient’s problem. After all, you can’t make lasting change or have excited patients if you don’t know what is really wrong. Symptom charts and guesswork don’t cut it!

Treatment: Expert conservative care includes three equally important categories: Manual Therapy, Exercise and Load Management. If you are not really, really good at all three, your results and practice are suffering. Most providers are too focused on manual therapy. Are you?

Communication: Even with amazing clinical skill, you need to be an effective communicator. Patients need to know what is wrong, how you will help, what they need to do and why it’s important. This is an extremely undervalued art: Be accurate, be concise, be compelling.


In 2010 Dr. Phipps began his post-doctorate training in the diagnosis and conservative treatment of muscle, nerve and joint problems through the Integrative Diagnosis system.

He is a full body certified Integrative Diagnosis provider (Low back & hips, neck & back, upper extremity, and lower extremity).
