Most of the time, when someone sprains their ankle they visit their GP or their physio. But did you know that podiatrists can also treat ankle sprains. Whether they are new or old, podiatrists (who specialise in legs) can fill in your ACC claim, send you for any scans you may need, strap your ankle, provide a rehabilitation programe for you, and also provide custom orthotics. If you have extensively damaged your ankle your podiatrist may refer you to an orthopedic surgeon if required.
