Depends: It depends on the type of injury you have. You need to ask what your limitations are from the foot specialist that has been treating your injury. Your question is too broad to answer without more information.

I'm biased:: See a podiatrist. Orthopedists who specialize in foot and ankle problems can certainly be just as good. But i'll let my professional prejudice prevail in this answer.

Depends : On the type of injury. Plantar fasciitis can become so severe that any weight-bearing inflames the area and continues the process. Then only staying off the foot will allow healing to occur. See you orthopedist or podiatrist for further care and instructions.
