Yea that is a problem in this industry. There are going to be a ton of suggestions for you, you can also look up other threads about this subject to see what others have done. 

 

What I have done is get anti fatigue mats in the kitchen as well as get pressure socks and anti fatigue shoes for your feet. The pressure socks work wonders. If it is your knees that feel the brunt of everything I would add on top of what I just suggested a bandage called kinesiology tape.....its freaking amazing and will help with the soreness. When you get home from work I would get an epsom bath in to relieve the bodies well. 

 

HTH :D
