As a support system for the human body, the spine works very hard to help other anatomical systems function properly. As you might imagine, a serious spinal injury could take you away from your job temporarily or permanently. In turn, this may result in a significant loss of income and financial security, which could carry on for the rest of your life.
Unfortunately, many job opportunities in Omaha can be particularly hazardous to the human spine. A few examples of jobs that can result in workplace injuries to the spine include the following.
- Construction workers
- Groundskeepers and landscapers
- Healthcare personnel
- Warehouse workers
- Assembly line and factory workers
