A podiatrist is also trained in the diagnosis and treatment of ankle pain.

In brief: It depends.

If you are young and the problem is related to physical activity, i would recommend perhaps your primary care physician or an orthopaedic surgeon.
If you are over 65 and have heart or kidney conditions, you should visit your primary care physician. Hope this helps.
