One of my calves is significantly smaller than the other after wearing a walking boot for 6 weeks for a foot fracture.  Are there any effective calf-building exercises that don’t require going up the ball of the foot (e.g. calf raises)?  I have arthritis in that foot from a Lisfranc injury and can’t put weight on the ball of my foot.  I’ve been doing the ankle plantarflexion exercise with a blue theraband for weeks but it’s not buiding the muscle.  Thanks in advance for any recommendations!
