About Lystra Physical Therapy

Robert Malone, owner and Physical Therapist here at Lystra, graduated from the University of Alabama in Birmingham and has been working as a Physical Therapist for 15 years. Prior to his therapy career, he spent eight years as an Army Nurse and graduated from the University of North Alabama.


He opened his clinic with a very specific goal in mind, to treat like no other! With a heavy focus on manual, one-to-one physical therapy, he tackles issues that have otherwise remained as nagging, unresolved pain. Robert or our Physical Therapist Assistant will treat you in a hands-on fashion for your entire appointment. We believe the patient can complete their exercise routines at home. He has rave reviews from his patients, many of who return to him over and over for other cases.

Lystra Physical Therapy and Wellness was opened in August of 2015 and Robert worked tirelessly for two years on his own to get the clinic up and running. Since then, he has hired Joshlyne Villano (me, the author of this post!) and we are both working hard to bring a new type of therapy to our patients.

Want to be a part of something new? Give us a call and see what all the hype is about.

Our Mission: To provide a well-rounded staff to enable each person to perform at their best ability to function, and provide a means of continuation of self or assisted maintenance of wellness.

Our Goal: To have each person performing at their highest level of function with the least amount of pain. Therapy should not be painful. However, we do expect some discomfort at times. We also expect to give and receive honest feedback on your improvements, neutrality, and declines. We also ask for your compliance in your home exercise program to provide the safest and quickest recovery to return you to an optimum level of health.

  1. My husband and I have had therapy on several occasions. When my husband had his knee replaced Lystra was recommended by a friend so we decided to try it. Best decision ever. I had my knee replaced and used them also. From now on if we need therapy we will use Lystra and I recommend it above all others we have used.
