Stuart received his Ph.D. from the University of Calgary in 1989. His doctoral work was on the relationship of muscle activity as measured by surface electromyographic (sEMG) techniques to chronic pain. He utilized sEMG in studying myofascial pain and fibromyalgia. Unique in the psychophysiology field, he also studied qEEG and brainwave activity combining sEMG with EEG biofeedback producing a comprehensive theory involving neural plasticity and fibromyalgia.
Stuart published extensively on both myofascial pain syndromes and fibromyalgia. In 1995 he won the American Journal of Pain Management Award entitled, The Outstanding Contribution to the Interdisciplinary Pain Management Literature, for his work on sEMG, neck pain and headaches. Stuart traveled and lectured about his clinical work and research throughout North America for decades.
