2. Bunion Surgery
While wearing poorly fitting shoes can contribute to the formation of bunions, this condition is also hereditary. Your pretty sandals may not look as lovely if you suffer from the knobby bump and characteristic angled big toe of bunions. However, this foot deformity is more than just a cosmetic problem. Many insurance companies will pay for bunion surgery when the bunion is accompanied by pain, balance problems, and difficulty walking. If you suffer from a bunion on one or both feet, you may have trouble finding shoes that will fit properly, making the problem even worse.
1. Varicose Veins
The ropy, purplish, bulging veins that sometimes appear on the legs may also be more than just a cosmetic problem. These unsightly veins are caused by weakened valves in your blood vessels. Weak valves prevent your blood vessels from getting your blood back up to your heart from your lower legs. As blood collects in your blood vessels, they can become stretched and twisted. Insurance companies may pay to fix this medical problem when varicose veins cause pain, swelling, and pooling of blood in the veins.
