Dr. Marc Funderlich brings to NJ HBOT a specialization in Functional Neurology for both adults and children. This specialization looks at correcting the integration and function of the brain.
He corrects brain and immune system dysfunction by focusing on the development and restoration of the brain in children and adults. He is different from other providers in that he has extensive experience inside the chiropractic and medical world allowing him to effectively bridge the gap and provide patients with comprehensive care and much needed support.
Brain development and restoration takes a comprehensive approach including: blood work, lifestyle change, physical rehabilitation, and passive therapies. Dr. Marc Funderlich takes extensive time with each patient to make sure they are not only receiving the best quality care but also become fully educated on what they are going through. He believes the more his patients understand about their disease process, the better and faster the can aid in their recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions
Discover your question from underneath or present your inquiry from the submit box.
Can I overdose on oxygen?
Added enriched oxygen does need to be monitored. Ask your doctor and trained hyperbari professional. Of course, if enriched oxygen is not being supplemented into the chamber, this is not an issue.
Is Hyperbarics safe?
Hyperbarics has a very good safety record. Many hyperbaric centers report only mild ear discomfort as a contraindication to therapy. Such a discomfort is similar to the ear pressure felt when ascending or descending in altitude. These discomforts may be minimized by descending at a slower rate. Discuss these concerns with the treating physician and hyperbaric technician.
Does insurance cover Hyperbarics?
In the United States, there are certain indications which insurance covers. This includes gangrene, radiation burns, carbon monoxide poisoning and decompression sickness. Traditionally insurance does not cover these treatments for the conditions we are using it for in our office.
What is the difference between Mild Hyperbarics and High Pressure Hyperbarics?
Mild Hyperbarics is generally a pressure protocol up to 1.3 ATA or 4 psi. High Pressure Hyperbarics involves pressures above 1.5 ATA. These pressures are achieved in a variety of chambers currently available on the market, including monoplace, multiplace and portable chambers.
Where can I go for treatments?
We offer HBOT treatments in our office as well as a rental or purchase option for the ability to do the treatments at home.
How many treatments are needed?
Each case is different and the doctors may regulate protocols, depending on a patient’s disease, prognosis and improvements through the course of therapy.
What is Hyperbarics used for?
Traditionally HBOT has been used for diabetic foot wounds, air and gas embolism, carbon monoxide poisoning and smoke inhalation, gas gangrene, thermal burns, decompression sickness and acute mountain sickness. Due to the healing effects of oxygen therapy HBOT is now also used for cerebral palsy, brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, ALS, anemia, wound and scar healing, post stroke care, post surgical care, improved performance, dementia and bells palsy… just to name a few. Visit our conditions treated tab for more information.
How does hyperbarics work?
Hyperbarics is a technology in which the air pressure in the environment is increased. When a person’s body is placed in a more pressure environment, it absorbs more oxygen molecules per volume of compressed air. The body normally transports oxygen via the hemoglobin of the red blood cells. By increasing the air pressure, oxygen is then driven into the body’s fluids, allowing a super-saturation of tissues and organs with oxygen. The increased pressure infuses the body with oxygen, even reaching injuries with damaged circulation. An example of this is a blood clot in the brain (stroke).
