I need to find commonly used phrases in a text field in a SQL table (SQL 2008 R2)

I need to find commonly used phrases in a text field in a SQL table (SQL 2008 R2). The text contain reports written by medical professionals. The output I would like is a listing of phrases in the text and how often they are used. For example, I would want the output to look something like this:
# of Occurrences Phrase
120 - Continue with plan of care
119 - The patient complained of pain located
100 - Restrict lifting to a maximum of
I can run loops to find all of the length of phrases and dump phrases into a table and then query for a count of each one, but I know that will take a lot of time. Is there any way to do this more efficiently and faster?
