If you have been seeing protruding veins on the legs for a long time, then it is very important to get it treated. You can reduce the symptoms of varicose veins with the help of some exercises. 

Is walking good for varicose veins?

The answer is yes. If varicose veins are visible on the body, then you must practice walking daily. By walking for at least 30 minutes daily, the blood circulation in the veins starts getting better.
