Chiropractors are incredibly important resources for many people, providing manual spinal and other bodily adjustments to help with pain and discomfort. Those who work as professional chiropractors need full use of their hands at all times while on the job, and this can make the wearing of certain traditional metal and stone rings something of a problem.
At Enso Rings, we're here to offer the solution: Silicone rings, which are worn by numerous professionals and other people who need use of their hands, but still want to represent themselves or a significant other through wearing a ring. We offer a huge range of styles, including our Ultralite collection that's meant to be barely noticeable on the finger while wearing it. What are some of the main reasons why chiropractors typically love silicone rings for their practical qualities? Here are several, plus some themes to keep in mind if you're a chiropractor selecting a silicone ring.
Sanitation and Hypoallergenic Qualities
As someone who works on patients' skin directly with the hands on a regular basis, a chiropractor needs to know that their ring won't add any extra bacteria or allergens to the situation. Traditional metal and stone rings can often trap dirt and oils, which isn't good for either the chiropractor or the patient. Additionally, some people have skin allergies to metals like nickel, which are common in many traditional rings.
Silicone is a natural material that is non-reactive and won't cause any skin irritations. It's also easy to clean, meaning that a silicone ring can be quickly disinfected after each use. This is important for both the chiropractor's personal hygiene and for keeping bacteria from spreading.
Durability and Flexibility
One of the biggest benefits of silicone rings is that they're incredibly durable and flexible. This is perfect for those who often use their hands for activities like sports, manual labor, or gardening. A metal ring can easily snag or get caught on something and damage it, but a silicone ring will bend and bounce back without any problems -- or will break off if the pressure is too great and risks damage to your finger.
Flexibility is also important for those who need to take their ring on and off often. Traditional metal rings can be a hassle to resize or remove, but silicone rings can be quickly stretched or compressed to fit any finger size.
Thin and Lightweight
As mentioned before, the Ultralite collection from Enso Rings is designed to be incredibly thin and lightweight. This is perfect for those who don't want their ring to get in the way or be a nuisance while they're working. The slim profile also makes them less visible when worn, which is great for professionals who want to represent themselves through their rings without drawing too much attention.
If you're a chiropractor who's looking for a new ring, we highly recommend taking a look at our silicone rings. With their many practical benefits, they're perfect for anyone who needs full use of their hands while still wanting to represent themselves or a loved one.
In any case where you happen to misplace or damage your ring, silicone rings can be replaced for a fraction of the cost of metal or stone rings. This is because silicone is a relatively cheap material to produce, and our rings are made with quality in mind.
For instance, if your ring breaks off to prevent a finger injury while you're using a piece of equipment on the job, you can simply order a new one without worrying about the cost.
No Moisture Retention
Sweat is also a common problem for those who wear traditional metal and stone rings. Over time, sweat can cause the ring to tarnish or even rust, which isn't ideal for either the ring or the wearer's finger.
Silicone rings don't have this problem, because they don't absorb any moisture. This means that your ring will always look clean and new, no matter how sweaty your hands get.
Won't Get in the Way
One of the key issues with metal and stone rings is that they can often get in the way. They can snag on things, make it difficult to grip objects, or even pinch your fingers -- or the skin of a patient -- if you're not careful.
Silicone rings, on the other hand, are very lightweight and won't get in the way of your work. They're also slightly flexible, which means that they won't cause any problems if they happen to catch on something.
Choosing a Great Ring as a Chiropractor
Here are some tips we can offer to chiropractors who have decided to look into one or more of our silicone rings:
Prioritize comfort: Comfort is key when it comes to rings, as you'll be wearing them for hours at a time. Make sure to try on different rings and see which ones feel the best on your fingers.
Consider function: If you're looking for a ring that will perform well during work, make sure to prioritize durability and flexibility. A silicone ring that can withstand pressure and is easy to move will be perfect for those who need full use of their hands.
Think about style: While comfort and function are important, it's also important to find a ring that you like the look of. Many of our rings come in a variety of colors and styles, so you're sure to find one that you'll love.
Finally, always keep in mind that our rings are a fraction of the cost of traditional metal and stone rings. If you need to replace your ring for any reason, you won't have to worry about spending a lot of money.
