Haglund's Bump

I am 46 and like to compete in Masterís track as a sprinter. For the last couple of years I havenít been able to sprint due to a worsening Achilles heal bursitis problem. There is clearly a bump on my heal. I am told that the problem is called Haglundís Bump. This problem only surfaced after I developed a significant case of Achilles Tendonitis. My Achilles tendon is fine now, however.

I already have tried orthodics that elevate my heal. They help a little, but I am still unable to sprint without significant aggravation to my heal. I would be very thankful for advice - particularly regarding what, if any, ankle support product I could buy to help with this.
