How can I maintain healthy veins? If you have symptoms of venous insufficiency, including aching, pain, burning, swelling or itching in your legs, by all means, see a venous physician and have the underlying cause of those problems fixed. Once you have had the problem fixed, follow the instructions. These instructions will probably include wearing compression stockings, which are not really popular, but are very effective in preventing the occurrence of venous disease.
