I struggle with walking medium distances or being on my feet for more than 1 hour or 2. How do I deal with this problem?

In brief: Replacement insoles

Take the insoles out of your shoes and replace them with ones that have more cushioning and support.
I like spenco products. The one i recommend most is the spenco polysorb cross-trainer insole. This will give you cushioning at heel strike and help decrease the impact on your knee. It may not have an "immediate" effect though. See an orthopedist.
