Exercise is always good for the veins and is the simplest way of preventing varicose veins. People with healthy veins and those with venous insufficiency need exercise, as this activates the muscle pump, which helps to transport blood from the legs back to the heart. Walking, hiking, cycling, Nordic walking, swimming, and all types of sporting activities that require the legs to work without over-exerting them can help to prevent venous problems and reduce symptoms.
